The West London garden so beautiful it costs £4.50 to see it

Temperatures in London are expected to reach highs of 31C this weekend, so there is arguably no better time to enjoy the sunshine in our gardens.

Not everyone in London has a garden, however, and some will go to local parks or visit family to soak in the sun instead.

But for those wanting to try something a bit different, Nick Gough is opening his garden in West London – described as a ‘riot of summer colour’ and a ‘little piece of paradise’ – to members of the public this weekend.

Nick, who lives in Ealing, is opening his garden this Sunday (July 18) to help raise money for the National Garden Scheme.

Nick Gough, a garden designer in Ealing, said: “We open twice a year for the charity and last time we opened it was a sell out to see our tulips.

“Luckily this time people can just show up and enjoy the summer garden as Covid restrictions are easing.”

The National Garden Scheme gives visitors unique access to over 3,600 exceptional private gardens in England and Wales, and raises impressive amounts of money for nursing and health charities through admissions, teas and cake.

This particular garden is located on York Road, just a short walk from Northfields Tube station. It is being opened to the public this Sunday and it costs £4.50 to enter, with children being free.

The garden was designed and created by ‘The Distinctive Gardener’, a duo made up of Nick Gough and green fingered partner Douglas Vieria, from Brazil. They work together across London to give people original looking outdoor spaces.

The opening will raise money for the National Garden Scheme

The garden open to viewing is in Nick’s house and the stunning space, if anything like the last time it was opened, is set to make a good contribution to the causes which the NGS support.

The charities supported include Macmillan, Marie Curie and The Queen’s Nursing Institute. Tea, coffee and cake will all be available in hope that more money will be raised.

You can pay online or through contactless on arrival.

To book your place for this West London garden go to www.nsg.org.uk, click on ‘Find a Garden’ and enter 38 York Road W5 4SG. You can also find other gardens to visit across London throughout the year.
