Visit fifteen glorious gardens around Goostrey

Sunday 9th June 2024

11:00am – 5:00pm

Early bird tickets available now!

Welcome to Goostrey Open Gardens 2024

All ticket sales raise vital funds for East Cheshire Hospice. The gardens range in size, setting and style from sweeping lawns to colourful courtyards and everything in between. Your map and brochure will help you decide which gardens you would like to visit – there are plenty to inspire and delight you. These gardens are private and we can’t thank the owners enough for offering to share them with us. Many gardeners are hosting their own mini events, demonstrations and refreshments, also for charity. We will also be holding a charity plant sale the the Bogbean so you may wish to collect them at a later time by arrangement. Accompanied children are also very welcome – there is something for them to spot in every single garden – full details are included in the brochure.

  4. Visitors are reminded that these gardens are not normally open to the general public and may include unfamiliar features that need to be negotiated with care such as steps, water features and uneven surfaces.
