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!

¹ Concessions apply to over 60's, registered disabled and guests with University of Liverpool Staff or Students

² Family tickets include up to 2 adults & 3 children

No dogs please except guide dogs and registered aiding dogs. Dogs are welcome to exercise in the public right of way area next to the car park (previously the Herb Garden).  We are happy to supply bowls of water and doggy treats for customers using the outdoor area at the front of the Visitor Centre.

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
