Winter Opening Hours

From 1 November 2015 to 31 March 2016, the Garden only will be open (the Café and Shop are closed) Mondays to Fridays, 9.30am-4pm or dusk (whichever arrives earlier). Please note special offers do not apply during our winter opening hours.

Our winter season, from November to March, is a quiet time in the Garden. This allows the Gardeners to undertake projects such as the World Woodland Garden 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.
