Wirksworth Hidden Gardens and Courtyards

 approx 32 gardens open Wirksworth, near Matlock, Derbyshire
Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th June 2024

This ancient town has a wide variety of intriguing courtyards and gardens that are often hidden from view but which offer glimpses of delight as you wander around the streets and alleyways.

The weekend gives a unique opportunity for visitors to look behind the walls and enjoy our private spaces where every size and type of garden and courtyard is to be found.

Visitors follow a garden trail around the town centre of Wirksworth, with home made cakes and teas en-route.

All proceeds will this year go to local organisations and charities linked to Wirksworth Town and our International Charity, Study Guatemala.
