Visitor Guidance & Garden Opening Timetable 2021
Please help us by noting the following points:
There is no need to book a garden visit unless otherwise stated on the garden listing page.
Check the website Before setting out to any garden opening, please check our website HOME page and then the specific garden’s information page (found under FIND A GARDEN) for any relevant updates, cancellations or changes to booking arrangements.
Bring plenty of change While some gardens may operate cashless entry system, other garden owners will ask you to put your donation into a bucket and change will not be available.
Stagger your arrival time Traditionally most visitors tend to arrive around the start time. But we wish to have a more spread-out flow of visitors and you can assist by arriving at various times through the opening. Many of our garden openers have extended their normal visiting hours this year to help with this.
Practice physical distancing We are carefully planning each opening to avoid any potential crowding and may use ticketing for timeslots as appropriate. However, if overcrowding does occur unexpectedly, you will be notified on arrival by signage or by one of our volunteers. Please bear with us and be ready to cooperate with any requests to delay your visit.
Wash your hands Please practice good hygiene during your visit and avoid touching surfaces where possible. Sanitiser will be available at most gardens but please do bring your own if you have it.
