Open Garden Squares, Sunday 19th June

Roehampton Club opens its gardens on Open Garden Squares Weekend 2016

As part of the Open Garden Squares Weekend, organised by the London Parks and Gardens Trust, we are opening up our gorgeous gardens for visitors to explore on Sunday 19th June.

Your OGSW ticket grants you access to London's best secret gardens over two days, Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th June from 10am to 4pm. Roehampton Club are one of several in south-west London - Grove House Estate at Roehampton University, Ham House and Garden, Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability and Share Community Garden.

Peter Bradburn, Roehampton Club's Head of Course and Grounds takes us on a tour of the gardens, to give you an idea of what to find behind our gates ...

Our sunken gardens are perfect for relaxing and reflecting with a colourful display of geraniums, fuchsia and ageratums. The garden's water feature provides a feature point with cascading water and a home for the ducks who love visitors.

Wander up the steps and through the wrought iron gates to find a newly created rockery and alpine garden. Around the corner is our herb garden where our Chefs select fresh herbs for their daily dishes and the scents of chocolate mint, curry plant and black peppermint can be enjoyed. 

The long walk bordering one of the Club's four immaculate croquet lawns features a herbaceous border which has recently been re-planted. The west side of the croquet lawn holds the newly planted autumn colour border with an autumnal plate of hues and spring flowers. Each of the bays along the walk holds seating and steamer chairs in which to relax and enjoy the feature climbers including wisteria, magnolia grandiforla and an impressive trained fig tree.

Through the arch at the end of the long walk you enter the rhododendron beds and the deck bar area where you can enjoy some refreshment. The yew hedges provide a backdrop and are an original feature of the gardens, laid out by the Miller family in 1901 and some of the most impressive yew clipped hedges in the area.
