The historic and private gardens of Canterbury Cathedral will be open to all this bank holiday weekend.
This popular annual event, which has been held for more than 10 years and run in connection with the National Garden Scheme (NGS), unlocks several private and secret gardens within the Cathedral grounds.
This year’s event will be raising money for the Meru Women’s Garden Project in Kenya and KRAN, the Kent Refugee Action Network.
Visitors will have the opportunity to wander around the Precincts, and to wonder and enjoy the fragrance and beauty of the gardens. The cathedral gardeners will be on hand all weekend to answer visitors questions. There will also be homemade cake to enjoy and plants for sale.
The National Garden Scheme has donated over £50 million to good causes since 1927, £25 million of this has been donated within the last ten years.
