Dear Garden Visitor,

We are delighted that visitors have returned to Morton Hall Gardens, even if we must take very careful steps in line with the government's road map for the easing of COVID-19 restrictions.

The current rules allow groups of up to six persons or from two households to gather in a private or public garden. To make your visit possible under these restrictions, please stay within such groups for the duration of your visit.

All our staff are wearing FFP2 masks, and we would encourage everybody who feels comfortable wearing a mask, to do the same. There is a hand sanitization station at the entrance to the garden, and maps of the garden are available.

You may able to explore our lovely spring meadows and the formal gardens at your leisure. There is only limited access to our woodland gardens in a one-way system. Rest assured that you still can see everything!

For the month of April, we are unable to offer refreshments and toilet facilities. Please take this into account when planning your visit.

The admission charge for this, slightly restricted, but safe visiting experience is £10 per person. Please contact us by Email at morton.garden@mhcom.co.uk or phone on 01386 791820 for more information.

On 1st to 3rd May, we will host our Tulip Festival, together with our partners, the Royal Shakespeare Company and Bloms Bulbs. Following government guidelines and advice from the county Environmental Health Officer, we have developed a format which should allow us all to enjoy the festival and keep us all safe. There will be queuing systems and sanitization stations at entrance, marquee and toilets.

There will be no ticket sales on the day and all food sales will be by card only.

After the tulip festival, we will able to offer light refreshments in the form of picnics which you can enjoy in gazebos in our West Garden. There will also be toilet facilities. The admission fee will be £13 per person.

We hope that it won't be too long before we can give guided tours again.

We very much look forward to welcoming you!
