Gardens open by arrangement

Find a perfect by arrangement garden

What is a by arrangement garden?

A garden open by arrangement accepts visitors to their garden for a more personalised visit, on a pre-agreed date. Usually, the garden will advertise a range of dates available that they are willing to open so that visitors can decide on their most suitable option.

In the light of the deterioration in the national Coronavirus situation and the government’s overriding message that people should stay at home, we are advising no garden visits should take place in January and are either cancelled or postponed. Please click here for our updated full statement.

If searching for a town, county, region or by garden name please make sure you click on the relevant one in the dropdown list before clicking Find a Garden. If searching by postcode please enter the full postcode.

What is a by arrangement garden?

A garden open by arrangement accepts visitors to their garden for a more personalised visit, on a pre-agreed date. Usually, the garden will advertise a range of dates available that they are willing to open so that visitors can decide on the most suitable option for them.

What are the benefits of booking a visit in advance?

Booking a by arrangement garden gives you direct contact with the garden owner, allowing you to liaise on everything from convenient times and dates, to what you’ll see and do once you’re there.

Why choose By Arrangement?

Did you miss an open day or perhaps you would like to bring your family back for a special occasion?  Small social groups are also welcome in line with current government COVID-19 guidelines. Contact any garden offering By Arrangement visits to discuss options.

Booking your By Arrangement visit

Our gardens opening in 2021 will be available to view from this page from early December 2020. From the garden information page you will find the garden owner’s contact details. They are waiting to hear from you and will be delighted to help you create the perfect visit.

The garden owner will confirm all the details and whether they require a deposit/full payment ahead of the visit.

In the meantime if you are wanting to start planning some 2021 visits to By Arrangement gardens please contact linda@ngs.org.uk

Enjoy your garden visit!

“We very often go to National Garden Scheme gardens because we find the owners very welcoming and appreciative of our interest in their gardens. The highlight of our visits is often admiring the stories they tell, as they show us around, of how they started and developed their gardens. If they can give us advice on particular plants, that’s a bonus.”
