Give a little, help a lot

We rely upon the generosity of our visitors to support the gardens. The gift aid prices include a 10% donation because if you are a UK taxpayer and make a donation of 10% or more, then the government will give us an extra 25% on the whole amount!

*Proof of student status needed - college card, NUS card, enrolment letter or similar.  Concessions apply to over 60's and registered disabled.  Family tickets include up to 2 adults & 3 children

No dogs in the main gardens except assistance dogs.  Dogs are welcome to use the outdor cafe area and Laburnum arch lawn next to the car park (previously the Herb Garden).  We are happy to supply bowls of water on request. Please keep dogs on short leads at all times. Do not leave your dog unattended in a car.

Be prepared. Please come dressed in suitable clothing for the weather and wear appropriate footwear. The Gardens are undulating and paths may be wet and slippery, please take care.

Lost property. We can only keep lost property for a maximum of 3 months
