As we monitor the ongoing risk of Covid-19, we may reintroduce a limited number of “on-the-door” ticket sales later on in the season, but this is largely dependent on the progress of the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown.
To open, we have made changes to our booking process and the gardens themselves to ensure we remain compliant with social distancing measures. Please read the below carefully before continuing to book your tickets.

If at the end of your visit you choose to upgrade your ticket to that of a Season Ticket, all you need to do is return to the visitor entrance to purchase one. We will then refund your day ticket cost back to you through the booking website (up to the amount of people on the Season Ticket being purchased for).
All our general day tickets will be available on our booking site.
We are now accepting Historic Houses Association members, the Gardener's World 2for1 card, and RHS member bookings through our site. Please read through the following terms and conditions before booking.
