Around 2,000 visitors discovered the secret and unusual gardens of Bury St Edmunds at the weekend to raise money for charity.
The Hidden Gardens of Bury, an annual event now in its 31st year, was held on Sunday, June 18, to raise funds for St Nicholas Hospice Care.
Visitors had the chance to walk around the historic grid to view 30 gardens and other features which might normally be hidden from the public behind their facades and high walls.
All the gardens were in walking distance of each other, with refreshments served and music played throughout the day at the popular event.
The money raised from this year’s event has yet to be totted up, but over three decades the event has raised more than £325,000 for the hospice. The charity, based in Bury St Edmunds, provides support to those with long-term or terminal illnesses and their families across west Suffolk and Thetford.
