Clifton Green Squares & Secret Gardens on Saturday 9th & Sunday 10th June 2018Posted on: 06 Jun 2018
Nobody can resist a good ol' snoop, so those of a particularly inquisitive (and green fingered) nature will be delighted that Clifton Green Squares & Secret Gardens will be returning to Bristol over the weekend of Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th June 2018.
The elegant and often grandiose locale of the terraces and crescents is more than just those with a penchant for organic sourdough, the aspiration for greater wealth or children called Rupert and Araminta. Clifton House boasts some of the most beautiful gardens in not just the city, but the entire country, and they're being opened especially for you this weekend.
Covering Clifton, Cliftonwood and Hotwells, this sneaky dunk into communal gardens - generally not made accessible to the public - will be a marvellous chance to have a rare gander at some of the most inspiring, beautiful green spaces in the city, as well as plenty of enchanting squares and gardens.
At the moment, the gardens are being snipped, chopped, pruned and prepared ahead of their verdant, floral unleashing to the public for this hand-rubbingly exciting two-day horticultural sneak peek. A weekend of getting away from the chaotic hullabaloo of modern living by immersing yourself in the joys and pleasures of beguiling green spaces - what could be better than that?
