About the event

We're planning to open the gorgeous gardens of Marton cum Grafton, North Yorkshire again this year to the public. This fun-packed day, offers a rare opportunity to explore the secrets of the hidden and private gardens of this charming village. They come in all shapes and sizes and the village’s elevated position provides spectacular views over to the Dales to the west and the White Horse on the moors to the north.

The theme of this year's celebratory event will be the Silver Jubilee and a whole range of entertainment will be on offer to include: a local art and crafts exhibition, a beautiful floral display in Christ Church along with plenty of village fete style fun and games on Grafton Green. Once the stunning gardens have whetted the appetite, guests can enjoy delicious food in the Marton Village Hall, where lunch, cakes and drinks are available. Whilst in Grafton the WI will be serving mouth-watering cakes and tea. On Grafton Green BBQ sausages and ice creams will be on sale along with a sensational Pimms Bar. A highlight for 2017 is a fantastic display of Vintage and Super Cars.

A courtesy bus service is provided, taking people from one end of the village to the other. Car parking is on offer and wheel chair access is available to many of the gardens.

All proceeds from the event will go to village community projects.
