The gardens, nursery and tea room are now open Wed-Sat 10-5. There is no need to pre-book. If you wish to, you can purchase tickets for the gardens in advance to avoid any queueing at the counter.
Entry to the gardens is free for RHS members and we are pleased to accept the BBC GW 2-for-1 card. The tea room is open with reduced seating inside but plenty of outside seating. We look forward to welcoming you.
Visiting the nursery and shop is free of charge, and advance booking is not required, but facemasks are required at all times in these areas. We strongly suggest placing a Click and Collect order before arrival, or review our stock online and bring a list of what you wish to purchase. Please note that not all of our stock is kept in the retail area of the nursery.
Our opening hours are Wednesday to Saturday, 10am to 5pm. Please note we are closed Sundays, Mondays, and Tuesdays.
Tickets for visiting the gardens are £5.00 per person with 20% of all ticket proceeds going to the National Garden Scheme charity. We accept the Gardener's World Two-for-One pass.
Garden entry is free to RHS members.
