Coronavirus Update – July 2021
Coronavirus update 19 July 2021
Following the government’s announcement that was enacted today, we can confirm that all mandatory restrictions affecting our garden openings in England that were in place have now been removed.
This includes restrictions on numbers in group bookings, the wearing of masks and social distancing.
Some restrictions will continue to be in place in Wales until 7 August and details of these can be found in the link below.
However, we advise that everyone continues to be cautious and we know that visitors will wish to be mindful of a number of factors such as social distancing and hygiene relating to the serving of food and drink.
Most gardens in England and Wales are open on the basis of either tickets pre-booked through the website or tickets purchased on the day at the garden gate.
For a limited number of gardens, mainly small or group gardens or ones with restricted access, it continues to be essential to pre-book a ticket online.
Many gardens are offering home-made teas or other refreshments and some are offering plants for sale.
Where you see the contactless payment symbol in a garden’s online entry that means they are offering payment by card. Otherwise payment is by cash.
