Broadway’s gardens have been the backdrop for artists, writers, actors and musicians for over a century, and continue this theme today.

On this walking tour of two famous private gardens with Marion Mako, we shall hear about some of the stories behind those who created, inhabited and visited them, all looking their finest in June.

The afternoon garden tour will visit:

  • Russell House Garden (starting point)
  • Court Farm Garden

The tour will start at Russell House on Lower Green in Broadway – tickets must be purchased in advance through the website

Two different gardens will be visited in the morning tour (see separate event listing)
