Goody Bags

Our Gift Shop is always open for pupils and teachers to purchase any souvenirs of their day at the Gardens. However, if teachers prefer not to visit the shop but would still like to make a purchase, then the shop can arrange for goody bags to be made up for collection instead. Please advise of your requirements on your booking form. (We regret that we cannot invoice you for any shop/goody bag purchases. They must be paid for on the day via cash, cheque or credit card.)
