Booking garden visits

Due to ongoing high demand to visit RHS Garden Bridgewater, we’re asking all visitors, including members, to pre-book their visit to the garden. RHS members go free – Find garden admission prices here. Please book mobility scooters and wheelchairs in advance of booking a garden time slot to ensure availability (information below).

Please note: No pre-booking is required for the Garden Centre or Affiliated Societies using their 50% discount card.

Until 18 May 2024, entrance to the garden is free for Salford residents every Tuesday. Pre-booking is required and proof of address for each resident must be shown on arrival. Each Tuesday, more than 1000 free tickets are available for Salford residents. We release tickets each week so if there is currently no availability please try again next week.
