Visit RHS Gardens for £1

At the RHS, we’re keen to share the joy of gardening with as many people as possible. So, from 1 April 2023, if you receive any of the following benefits, you’ll be able to visit RHS Garden Hyde Hall for just £1:

  • Universal Credit
  • Pension Credit
  • Housing Benefit
  • Child Tax Credit
  • Working Tax Credit
  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance

The £1 ticket scheme is one of the many ways we are making our gardens more accessible.
