Open Gardens - Sandwich
Delight in the sights and smells of eight gardens in bloom at this open gardens event
The lovely 'secret' garden at St Peter’s will be open alongside some of the most magical gardens in this Cinque Port town as part of the annual ‘Little Gardens of Sandwich’.
A real treat is in store for garden-lovers this year as they will have the chance of a private peak at eight very different gardens set behind ancient medieval walls in the centre of Sandwich and then wander along to St Mary’s Arts Centre for a delicious cream tea.
After a restorative cup of tea, visitors can take a look at a number of plant stalls set up by local specialist nurseries that will be imparting their plant knowledge and selling a wide variety of perennials, annuals, shrubs and herbs and then try their luck in the charity raffle for the chance to win an array of garden-themed prizes.
The gardens at this year’s event, which is supported by local estate agents Colebrook Sturrock, SPC design & print and The Co-Op Sandwich, are:
- Haven House, Harnet Street
- Cramond House, Harnet Street
- Delf House, Delf Street
- Stuart House, Delf Street
- John’s Cottages, The Cattle Market
- 6 Potter Street

- The Sandwich Library Garden
Entry tickets for all eight locations cost £5 per person, accopanied children go free. Cream teas will be priced at £3 each. Tickets can be bought in advance from the Sandwich Tourist Office at the Guildhall and will be available on the day at each garden.
All proceeds from the event go to the upkeep of St Clement’s Church in Sandwich.
