Garden Tickets


We are delighted that many of our gardens in England and Wales are now open. To conform with government guidelines and ensure the safety of our volunteers and visitors, you will need to pre-book tickets on the website. Every Monday we add a new batch of gardens that are opening and make tickets available for you to pre-book – so do keep checking the website regularly; alternatively sign up at the bottom of this page to our newsletter to be kept fully up to date.
There are some gardens that are open on a By Arrangement basis, rather than on a specific day. To view those gardens and to book your visit direct with the garden owner please go to the current By Arrangement listing
