Staying safe

Our foremost priority is always the health and safety of our members, visitors, staff and volunteers, and we continue to revisit and update our Covid-19 policies to reflect the latest Government guidance.

If you or any members of your group have Covid-19 symptoms, or if you have recently tested positive for Covid-19, please postpone your visit to the garden until you are testing negative.

Although there is no longer a legal requirement, we do ask that you wear a face covering, if able to, in crowded and enclosed spaces, including the ticket entrance, gift shop and Garden Centre, in line with Government guidance.
