We're Good To GoUpdated 5 January 2021
Following the latest Government guidelines announced on 4 January 2021, RHS Garden Wisley remains open for exercise.

We ask that everyone visiting the garden does not travel outside of their local area, defined in the latest Government guidelines as the village, town, or part of the city where they live.

Mandatory pre-booking remains in place, and during the new national lockdown, capacity for the garden has been further reduced to limit the numbers of visitors  at any one time.

Enclosed areas of the garden, including the Glasshouse, Alpine Houses and Bird Hide, will remain closed  in line with the regulations. Play areas will stay open.

Indoor catering venues are closed, but takeaway options are available. The Garden Centre will remain open during this period with limits on the number of people allowed inside at any one time.

We’re hugely grateful for the continued support of our members and visitors.

  • All visitors including members, guests of members and under 5s will require a pre-booked time slot
  • Visitors are asked to display their booking confirmation and valid membership cards on arrival at the garden. You will not be allowed entry to the garden without confirmation of your booking
  • Members are allowed to bring guests in line with their membership entitlements. Time slots must be booked for all those visiting
  • Time slots available for booking between 9.30am and 2.30pm. During half-term (13–21 February) last admission is at 3.30pm and the garden closes at 5pm.
  • You may arrive at any time within your time slot and stay as long as you like within garden opening hours
  • The toilets and accessible toilets remain open, with a limited number of people allowed entry at any one time
  • The Back to Nature Garden for children is open; please adhere to all social distancing measures
