Tickets and prices

Entry to the gardens is advance booking only. You will need to pre-book your time slot.

Wakehurst mansion and pond

Book your time slot

Wakehurst is open to a limited number of people who are able to safely get to us and enjoy our gardens. 

Your safety, and that of our staff, is our highest priority. That’s why we’ve introduced time slots to help us stagger the entry flow, reduce queues and limit the numbers of visitors to our garden. 

We’re sorry, but if you don’t have a ticketed time slot (even if you’re a member or booking for a child aged 16 and under) you will be turned away.

On arrival you will need to present:

  • Your time slot ticket (either on a phone or print out). You will not be allowed to visit without this. 

  • Your membership card, or email confirmation of membership.

  • Concessions may need to provide ID.

  • You will have 30 minutes from your chosen time slot to enter the Wakehurst.

Please help keep to social distancing guidelines and don’t arrive earlier than your time.

You should not come to the gardens if you are unwell or should be in isolation along with your household.
