Take time out to explore the Gardens this January

We’re pleased to confirm that the Gardens can remain open throughout lockdown in accordance with latest government advice – perfect for those New Year walks for local residents who want a change of scenery for their daily exercise.

Having access to tranquil, open spaces is proven to be beneficial to people’s wellbeing and mental health. The Gardens are a great place to take a moment out to practice mindfulness. Click here to read more about mindfulness and how it can be practiced in the Gardens.

While the Gardens are open, our glasshouses, however, remain closed to visitors for the time being to ensure your safety.

The Gardens are open 10am – 5pm daily and although pre-booking is not a condition of entry, it is recommended to guarantee admission on the day and time of your choice.

There’s lots happening at the Gardens this year with the grand reveal of our Urban Garden, the re-opening of our historic bandstand that has been undergoing refurbishment, as well as a range of activities for the whole family to enjoy – including seasonal activities.

Thank you for your support. We look forward to seeing you soon.
