37 Alwyne Road

The New River curves around the garden, freeing it from the constraints of the usual London rectangle and allowing differing degrees of formality - roses along the river, topiary, a secluded spot where the life of the river is part of the charm. Visitors return to see what’s new and to enjoy the spectacular array of very good home-made cakes. Shelter if it rains.

Sunday 3 June (2 - 5pm). Admission £4.00, children free. Home-made teas.

This garden also makes a donation to The Friends of the Rose Bowl.

The trees and the sky are big, a visit is like a day in the country. Planting along the river encloses but also allows views of ducks squabbling, moor hens nesting, and, sometimes, a heron fishing.
