Tickets and prices
Entry to the gardens is advance booking only. You will need to pre-book your time slot.
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.
If you think you won't be able to attend, simply log back into your account, find the customer service section and select 'cancel order' to free up a place for someone else.
You will receive a full refund if you cancel up to 48 hours before your time. If you cancel within 48 hours of your time, you may not be eligible so we suggest you purchase our Refund Protection.
As we are a charity, please consider donating your ticket price to help us continue our vital conservation work.
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.
We urgently need your help
Coronavirus closed our gates for nearly three months.
As a result, we have lost up to £15 million in vital revenue and, unlike other cultural institutions, we won’t be receiving any dedicated government support.
That means everything that we do, from seed banking and plant conservation, to growing and caring for your favourite horticultural highlights, is threatened.
As we are a charity, we now need your help to protect our vital scientific work and the gardens that we all love.
Any donation you can give would be greatly appreciated.
