Covid-19 update

This page was last updated 16 July 2021

Dear Garden Visitor,

As you are aware, most of the government's COVID-19 restrictions will be lifted on 19 July.

Since our gardens reopened in April this year, our goal has been to create an engaging and uplifting experience for our visitors despite the restrictions dictated by the pandemic. We have done our very best to keep our visitors and staff safe and have been commended by many of them for our conscientious approach and organization.

It is in the same spirit that we have decided to continue with the same safety protocols as before.

This means that we kindly ask our visitors to adhere to social distancing when interacting with our staff and make use of the disinfection stations provided. The latter applies in particular when perusing our collection of greeting cards which are on sale on a contactless card payment basis.

We also encourage using the NHS app to scan the QR code when entering the gardens.

Refreshments will continue to be served outside in picnic style.

Tickets for our NGS Open Day on 28th August must be pre-booked via our website. Just click on the NGS banner on top of the garden website to secure your ticket.

Please contact us by Email at or phone on 01386 791820 for more information.

We very much look forward to welcoming you!
