PICTURESQUE riverside gardens accessible only by boat form part of a festival this weekend celebrating the best in village horticulture.

Bisham Open Gardens takes place on Sunday, with 11 private gardens opening their gates to the public to raise money for All Saints Church Bisham.

Visitors will get the chance to look around a variety of gardens peppered throughout the village, including secluded riverside spots thanks to the ferry service on offer.

Entry to the gardens and Abbey costs £5, with donations requested for ferry services.
