General Information


Opening hours

Monday – Saturday 9am – 5pm
Sunday and Bank Holidays 10am – 4pm

There are a few days a year that we close. These are usually over Christmas and during the RideLondon-Surrey Cycle Race. We will announce closures as soon as we can on this website as well as on social media and via our monthly newsletter.


Entry and car parking is free. If the car park is full when you arrive, please park considerately on the road outside.

Onsite facilities

Toilets, baby changing, disabled toilets, and disabled parking as well as flat, level access to the majority of the garden and courtyard.


We don’t allow picnics and ask that you make use of our cafes instead. There are two onsite: The Garden Pod Café and The Hothouse Eatery. We are a Not For Profit Foundation and our cafes are our main source of revenue, ensuring the future of the garden.


We welcome well-behaved dogs on leads.

Large groups

Please contact us in advance if you are a group of 25 or more wishing to visit.

Make a donation

Please help us to continue developing and growing the garden by making a donation via one of the boxes dotted around the site.

Filming and photography
