The Gardens are Closed to the Public

Please be aware that the Gardens are currently closed to the public and have been so, since October 2011.

Unfortunately, there are still a number of websites suggesting otherwise – and from some of the complaints we’ve had to field – quite a few wasted journeys and disappointed potential visitors, because of them! We have contacted a good many websites that have been providing incorrect information – some have removed, or amended their listings – unfortunately, others have not.

The only way to visit and enjoy the Gardens at the moment, is to join one of the volunteer working parties – please see our Volunteering page for further details.

Until such time as a new operator for the Gardens has been appointed and lacking any other ‘official’ website – is currently the best place to find news of any developments.
