Open Gardens

Sat 30 June and Sun 1 July (mostly)

• We have sixteen Open Gardens this year, compared with eleven in 2016, and several are open for the first time.
• They range from Boxworth End Farm in the south to The Windmill in the north.
• In between we have others in Boxworth End, (including the garden of a thatched cottage), Whitton Close and Middle Watch.
• In the west we are delighted to have two new side-by-side houses in Home Close and an entrant in the National Garden Scheme in Moat Way.
• There is a cluster of seven gardens in High Street, Wallman’s Lane, Black Horse Lane, Market Street and Station Road.
• Hale Road Allotments will be open of course with produce sales and that leads you on to The Windmill nearby.

This year only you will get a chance to see inside the Windmill on Hale Road and even climb to the top for a unique view of the countryside.

Refreshments will be available at two well-separated gardens and plant/produce sales at three. With the main refreshment pit stop at the Memorial Hall 1940’s café.


Full details of Open Gardens, including a location map and their opening times, are included in the Festival Passport which can be obtained beforehand from Swavesey Newsagents and on Open Garden days from St Andrew’s Church, The Memorial Hall and The Primary School.

Saturday 30th June 1 – 5pm
Sunday 1st July 1 – 5pm

Free with festival passport.
