The Hidden Gardens of Beacon Hill Annual Tour celebrates a long tradition of urban gardening. From our first garden tour in 1928 when the club was founded, every year our members have opened their gardens on the third Thursday of May. Your contribution and participation is critical to our support of many urban gardening and educational programs and beautification of public spaces.


Our Tour is self-guided allowing you to explore our neighborhood. We are pleased to once again invite you to King's Chapel Garden for tea and refreshments during the Tour. Please wear comfortable shoes for walking and bring along a water bottle and an umbrella. We look forward to hosting you and sharing Beacon Hill with you!

Your ticket is the Tour Booklet which you may pick up at check in. Please refer to the map inside the tour booklet. Look for our yellow flags that mark each garden’s entry.  Ribbon gardens are viewed from the street/sidewalk.  Peak viewing is typically before lunch. Please enjoy this tour at your own pace.
