We will be open from 2nd June

We ask that all visitors:

  • Please come at your booked time
  • Wear suitable footwear as some paths are steep
  • Respect social distance rules
  • Wear a mask inside the Visitor Centre, Glasshouse and entrance walkway

Your visit

Main opening times are from 10 am to 4pm. For seasonal closing times click here.

Please help us to protect the rare plants and trees in the garden. Stop that urge to climb the trees and run into the flower beds. Instead, try a big run up Highdown Hill and enjoy the amazing view.

No dogs except guide dogs.

Following government guidelines, we are delighted to be fully reopening the gardens from Monday 19th July without any booking.

We will be monitoring the situation on a regular basis to ensure your experience remains peaceful and enjoyable. Hand sanitisers are available on site. Please be mindful of other visitors.

We also wish to remind people of the importance and fragility of our unique chalk gardens, please stick to the grass or paths during your visit.

There will be no events in the gardens this year however guided tours will be made available for bookings in the Autumn so keep an eye on this page.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your patience and understanding.
