Useful information

Smoking policy

For the health & welfare of our visitors, we operate a no-smoking policy, inclusive of e-cigarettes, in or near certain areas of the garden, including: dining or food outlets, eating areas or terraces, picnic areas, covered spaces or buildings and the children’s play area. This may extend to other areas of the garden in periods of very dry weather.

Guides and maps

See our interactive visitor map and guide to what’s looking good in the garden along with details on wheelchair accessible routes, toilets and other facilities.

Drone usage

We are concerned that the use of drones may introduce risks of injury to our staff or visitors, damage to our property, plants or local wildlife, or breaches of data protection laws. Personal drone usage is therefore prohibited at RHS Gardens. Commercial drone usage is also prohibited, save where occasionally commercial drone operators with suitable training and licences from the Civil Aviation Authority are allowed by the RHS to operate drones in an RHS Garden only where express permission has been provided to the drone operator in writing by the Head of RHS Garden Wisley.

Dogs in the garden

For the safety of all our visitors only assistance dogs are allowed in the garden.

Garden toys

We are sorry but garden toys, such as scooters and balls, are not permitted in the garden.
