We plan your weekend, so you don’t have to – with access into private gardens, a brand new contemporary art exhibition and a hilarious movie option to keep you and the rest of the family entertained.
SNEAK A PEAK AT NATURE
This Saturday and Sunday is the annual Open Garden Squares Weekend, giving Londoners a chance to see gardens that are usually kept closed to the public. There will be 46 open gardens in Kensington and Chelsea, and for the first time the Royal Hospital Chelsea, Royal Hospital Road, is opening its tranquil gardens usually used for horticultural therapy.

From yesterday (8 June) the gallery has brought in a host of new exhibitors, including contemporary paintings from Tom Homewood – who paints a mix of people, animals, places and still life – as well as modern landscape artist Jonathan McCree. The Mixed Exhibition is on at the Northcote Gallery until 30 June. Open Tuesday to Sunday.
TAKE THE KIDS TO A MOVIE
