Gardens open 10am – 6pm

The gardens are open to those who are well enough to enjoy the fresh air and can get here safely. 

We want to keep you and our staff safe. To help us limit numbers, please book a time slot in advance, otherwise unfortunately you won’t be allowed to visit. 

We are closing some key attractions to protect our staff and visitors during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
