You will also have a chance to take a look at what has been planted recently by the local community in the St George's Terrace garden in Primrose Hill:

As the Belsize Green Fair is all about promoting the green agenda, we want to to encourage you to cycle there rather than go there by car. So, bring your bike, park it, 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 North Camden 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.
