Cherry blossom in Spring

Gardens Re-opening

March 29 - October 31

Event Navigation

From the 29th March, we will be re-opening the gardens, and couldn’t be more excited to be sharing the sights of sounds of Spring with you.

If all goes to plan with the Government’s Covid recovery road map and our interpretation of how the regulations apply, we hope to be opening the coffee shop from the 12th April and the house from the 18th May.

There is no need need to book a time slot. Tickets are available to buy online in advance, or in the shop on arrival.
The loos will be open.To ensure the health and safety of all our visitors are staff, we politely ask everyone to follow NHS guidelines regarding regular hand washing and hygiene practices.
As you’ll appreciate, this is a changing situation and we are following Government advice. Please ensure you check the website for any updates before you visit the gardens.
Enjoy the fresh air and open space of the gardens and all that Spring has to offer.  Thank you for your continued support.
We’ll continue to share updates on the website. In the meanwhile, please join us on instagram and Facebook for seasonal postcards from the garden.
