This year you are invited to bring your bicycle along to the seventh annual Belsize Green Fair. Park you bike, stroll around the fair and then meet up at 2pm outside Budgens at 199-205 Haverstock Hill to join a cycle tour of community gardens in the Belsize Park area. We should be back at the fair by 3pm.

This route shows the locations of some of the gardens we will visit. We will also visit St George's Terrace in Primrose Hill.
