We’re giving a limited number of instagramers out-of-hours access to the Gardens on Saturday, May 27. As a special treat, the first outdoor dinosaur festival of its kind in the UK, Jurassic Kingdom, will also be at the Gardens, giving instagramers the opportunity to photograph giant animatronic dinosaurs before the event opens to the public.


Event details

Start: 8.45am (as this is before the Gardens are open to the general public, anyone arriving before this time will need to wait until the allocated member of staff arrives)

End: The Gardens will open to the public from 10am, but you are free to stay in the ground as long as you wish

Number of tickets available: 200
