    Cats are important features of any garden. Happy to see the fine specimens in your photos, GA.

    Can you just turn up on the day and pay?
    I couldn’t see how to book a ticket in advance on the website.

    I too contacted the site, foolishly not having read others’ comments. Rae Hick was very helpful, basically saying what those posting before me have said. Finding where to pay will be obvious.

    They do seem alluring gardens, in their hidden quality and their sense of place. Noting that, Rae did say it was a popular event last year so that may affect visit planning.

    Lovely, lovely walled gardens but how on earth do the owners prevent snails from eating their hostas? The half open gate looks very inviting, I wish that I could come.

    What beautiful gardens. I love the long row house gardens of London. They are magical places. I lived on Weltje Road just down from the Ravenscourt Park and there were so many lovely walled gardens around there that you could only get a glimpse of when you meet a friendly gardener.

    We went to see these gardens (having lived in Princelet Street) ; there is nothing more enticing than a peek through a door or a window to a garden beyond. Your photographs are so much better than mine. My daughter , Romilly, and I loved them all. Thank you for bringing these gardens to us.

    Thanks so much for letting your readers know about this event; we spent a wonderful afternoon, in spite of overcast weather. You might be interested in my thoughts and (very amateur!) photos:
