Visitor Information

If you have symptoms of Coronavirus (high temperature, new continuous cough, loss of taste or smell), please don’t visit – we’ll still be here to welcome you when you’re symptom free again!

Free guided heritage tours around the garden run during busier times. Unfortunately we do not take bookings for these free, volunteer led tours.

The companion of a disabled visitor is admitted free of charge, but please be aware that the garden is difficult for visitors who are solely reliant on a wheelchair due to the narrow paths and gravel surfaces.

We can only accept assistance dogs at our gardens.
