Bridewell Gardens provide social and therapeutic horticulture in a working garden to adults living in Oxfordshire. Our goal is to help people into jobs or voluntary roles back in the wider community.

Every summer we welcome the public to Bridewell for our Open Gardens and Community days. Open Gardens see us proudly showing off the beauty of our walled garden and vineyard, and the new planting by the team.

We sell our produce; eggs, fruit, vegetables, jams, jellies and chutneys and of course you can buy our fabulous wines too. Lots of plants are for sale, lovingly nurtured in our greenhouses. You can also join a free guided tour of the gardens, given by Ian Gourlay who has been a team member at Bridewell for many years so can give a wonderful history of the project and how we work.

And it seems that no one can resist our famous teas; tables are set up in the garden for you to enjoy homemade sponges, chocolate cakes, fruit slices and of course scones with cream and Bridewell jam.

We will be open on

– Thursday 16 August at 2–4pm

– Friday 14 September at 2–4pm

Please note that no wine is available for sale at the August and September Community Afternoons.
