The Suffolk Coast

Chelsworth Open Gardens

Wonderful gardens, refreshments, stalls, displays and entertainments. Add all this to the beauty of the village itself with its picturesque river, ancient bridge and welcoming pub and you have the makings of a great family day out.

Chelsworth is one of the prettiest villages in Suffolk and there is no better time to appreciate its charms than on the last Sunday in June. On that day, for more than 50 years, the villagers have opened their gardens to the public and thousands have flocked to see them. In fact the people of Chelsworth believe that they were the first village in England to come up with the idea of opening their gardens to raise money for good causes.

The gardens are many - well over 20 last year - and vary from huge and formal to tiny cottage plots, including water gardens, walled gardens and butterfly meadows. There are tall stately delphiniums and hollyhocks, roses, wild flowers and vegetable plots set against a tranquil backdrop of ancient timbered houses.
Plenty of parking.
