Usk Open Gardens

Monmouthshire

Usk is a picturesque little town on the river of the same name. For 23 years, we have held an Open Gardens weekend, when over 20 private gardens are open to the public – from small but beautifully planted plots, to the impressive sweep of the borders at Usk Castle. We welcome visitors from far and wide, and many make it an annual treat. There is also a Gardeners' Market with plant stalls, riverside walks, and lots of quaint pubs and cafes or picnic spots for lunch. Free town car parks, where the tickets are on sale.
