Secret Gardens of Topsham
The biennial Secret Gardens of Topsham offers an opportunity for visitors to see behind walls and into hidden corners of the town where they will be surprised and, we hope, delighted to discover a great variety of gardens, an opportunity to buy plants, and, of course, cream teas.
