Divine Rose Gardens to Visit & Fabulous Rose Events to Attend in Summer 2024!

When we think of summertime we often think of roses.  I adore scented roses!  I love growing roses and visiting rose gardens.  Here are some lovely gardens where you can celebrate and immerse yourself in the rose’s beauty and fragrance.

How to use this calendar:

The events are grouped by geographical area, use the filter hierarchy below to select events near you – e.g., click ‘Surrey’ to limit the page to only display events in the county of Surrey or click ‘South East’ if you’re interested in events in a wider area of that region of the country.

To search for events by month – click on your preferred month below.

NB: This calendar is often displayed over multiple pages, so it’s possible that you may need to skip to the next page – if you’re looking for events further in the future.

Some of the rose-themed events or rose garden openings listed on this calendar last only for a day; while other rose gardens are open daily; click on ‘Long Running Events‘ to see events that last for seven consecutive days or longer.

Please note: some of the events in this calendar require advance booking and others you can just turn up on the day.

    The Rose Gardens in Regents Park, London are fab – beautiful circular arrangement of climbers/ramblers on rope bowers & tall obelisks, plus large areas planted with shrub roses – picnic where you like among the rose scents.
    NB This article says it lists rose gardens AND events – but I can see only long lists calendar events. This makes it hard just to scan an area just to find rose gardens to visit at any time – irrespective of whether there’s an actual ‘event’ or not.

      Hello Diane

      Thank you for your message and great suggestions. I apologise for my slow reply, it has taken me a while to fix the events page as per your suggestion, but hopefully it will be much easier for you to navigate now.

      Thank you also for reminding me about the Rose Gardens at Regents Park – I added Regents Park as soon as I saw your comment.

      Thank you for your suggestions.

      Kind regards and best wishes
