One thought on “Divine Rose Gardens to Visit & Fabulous Rose Garden Events to Attend in Summer 2024!

  1. Diane M

    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.

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