Something for the weekend: The Garden Gadabout, Sussex Beacons

Garden gadabout
One for garden lovers, this weekend sees some of the nicest gardens in the Brighton area throw open their gates and welcome guests. Garden Gadabout is in its 16th year and includes over 60 gardens, large and small, a few allotments and very importantly, tea and cakes.

It looks a great day out, you can take the city trail, which winds through the more towny landscapes of Hove, north Brighton and Surrendon, or the costal path, which includes Lewes, Seaford and Peacehaven. Garden owners will be on hand to explain their planting and there will be many plants on sale as well as jams, local honey and even the odd Pimms (with home grown borage flowers, cucumber and strawberries presumably).

Entry to the gardens is £2 each, or much better value is the one day pass at £7, which will get you into everything. The gardens are also open next weekend, 3rd & 4th July if you can't make it this weekend and all proceeds go to The Sussex Beacon. for details on tickets.
