Opening times

Winter Season

From 1 November 2015 to 31 March 2016, the Garden only will be open (the Café and Shop are closed) Mondays to Fridays, 10am-dusk . Please note special offers do not apply during our winter opening hours.

The Garden will be closed from 23 – 27 November while preparations take place for the Christmas Fair, and from 23 December 2015 – 3 January 2016 for the Christmas break.

Our winter season, from November to March, is a quiet time in the Garden. This allows the Gardeners to undertake projects and maintain the Garden. For this reason the café and shop are not open during the winter season except for special events, and we do not hold guided tours or accept two-for-one or other special offers. If you would like to visit the Garden during this time, there are over 5000 plant specimens and several specialist Glasshouses to see.

Main Season 

From 25 March to 31 October 2016, the Garden, Café and Shop will be open Tuesdays to Fridays, Sundays & Bank Holidays, 11am-6pm (the Café closes at 5pm). Free guided tours every day.

Ticket prices and booking available here. 

Dogs are not permitted in the Garden, except for guide dogs.
