Gargrave is a village that nestles into the upper valley of the River Aire, on the southern fringe of the Yorkshire Dales in the north of England. The river runs through the village, where an ancient stone bridge and two sets of stepping stones link the northern and southern banks. Another water feature is the Leeds – Liverpool canal which reaches its northern-most point at Gargrave, a low spot in the Pennine hills which form the watershed between east and west coasts.

For the first time ever, Gargrave Open Gardens will be held over a full weekend. The much loved community event returns after 2020’s virtual event, on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th July 2021. A variety of Gargrave’s garden gems (approximately 25), will be open each day from 11am-5pm, alongside live music provided by musicians in selected gardens. Light refreshments will be served at St Andrews Church, in a safe and secure manner. All proceeds will go to St Andrew’s Church, Gargrave.

Discounted advance weekend tickets priced at £6, will be available from the beginning of July at the Twin Locks Garden Centre. Visitors on the day will be able to buy weekend tickets for £8 from outside Gargrave Village Hall.
