Changes to opening hours and an important update from the Gardens
As you will know, England is under new restrictions as of today, but we are delighted to let you know that the Gardens will be staying open for the duration of the lockdown.
We will be operating as a garden only – no glasshouses will be accessible in the month-long period – on reduced hours of 10am-3.30pm. Last entrance will be 3pm and you must book your visitor slot in advance online as you have been for the past few months.
To enable us to work safely, we will move the reception area to the hospitality entrance and visitors will have to exit via the green gates on the car park.
The glasshouses will remain closed for the duration, as will the cafe is open for takeaway only. The toilets on the Terrace will be available.
Our Garden Centre will stay open, which will be accessed from the car park only.
Don’t forget that you can visit the shop without entering the Gardens if you want to pick up gifts.
Please bear with us over the next four weeks: because we are relocating the reception area, there will, inevitably, be delays on answering calls or emails. But we will, of course, answer any queries as soon as we can.
Please also note that we will not be offering reductions on membership.
