Emley Open Gardens

 approx 12 gardens open Emley, near Huddersfield, West Yorkshire
Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th June 2024
10.00am to 5.00pm

Come and visit some of the most beautiful private gardens in the Yorkshire countryside. Emley is a compact village and most of the gardens are just a short walk from St. Michael's church.

We have something for everyone: wildlife-friendly gardens, spectacular herbaceous borders, colourful bedding schemes, rose gardens, water features, a knot garden and much more. Talk to our gardeners and be inspired to take some new ideas home with you.

To add to the atmosphere, Emley Brass Band will be playing outside church on Sunday and there will be live music in some of the gardens too.

Home-made refreshments, craft sale, book stall. Many gardens are wheelchair accessible and most are dog friendly.

Due to a 3.00pm football match in the village on Saturday, parking after 1.00pm may be problematic. Our Saturday visitors are strongly recommended to arrive early. The four outlying gardens should be unaffected.

Proceeds in aid of St. Michael's church, Emley.

Plant sales

6.00 on the day, 5.00 in advance, accompanied under 16s free.

How to get tickets / programmes

Number of gardens
Approximately 12 gardens will be open, but the total may vary from day to day - please contact the organisers if you need exact numbers.
