Stoke Poges Memorial Gardens to open as part of the 2017 National Garden Scheme

| May 15, 2017

As part of the 2017 National Garden Scheme the Stoke Poges Memorial Gardens is hosting an open day on Sunday 21st May 2017.

The Gardens on Church Lane will be open from 1.30pm to 4.30pm with guided garden walks taking place every half hour.

Set in twenty acres of parkland adjacent to the famous Stoke Park Country Club, Spa and Hotel, the landscape originally formed part of Stoke Park and was laid out by the famous landscape gardeners Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown and Humphry Repton.

There will be a small entrance fee of £4 (no charge for children under 16). All participating gardens in the National Garden Scheme give all the money raised directly to the NGS who then pass it on to charities including Macmillan, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Alzheimer UK and many others. About 750,000 visitors visit gardens across England and Wales as part of the National Garden Scheme.

During the open day light refreshments such as tea and cakes will be available to buy with all proceeds donated to charity.

Listed in the Telegraph’s Top 10 places to see Wisteria in the country the gardens will be looking fantastic. The planting scheme ensures colour and variety all times of the year however the garden’s full beauty is revealed in the spring and early summer.
