Terms & Conditions
To help our visitors safely visit our Gardens we have installed the following safety measures. Please make sure you adhere to these measures for the safety of all. Firstly, to ensure the Gardens do not become overcrowded we have limited the number of visitors each day. We have also installed a one-way system, social distancing signage, additional cleaning procedures and safety protocols for all our staff.
To reduce the amount of hand contact we have switched to the sale of tickets online only. No tickets are for sale at the site. You will be sent an email notification of your ticket purchase and be asked to show the proof of this (electronic image or printed) at the ticket booth at the point of entry. All payments are made via credit card, there is no cash transaction possible.
Please note that once you have entered the Gardens you may stay as long as you like. However, you may need to wait a few minutes on entry if several families have arrived at the same time.
If you plan to have a picnic please do this at a social distance from others and we would recommend bringing your own hand sanitiser.
Parking is Free, there is no charge to park your car.
