The National Garden Scheme is delighted to announce that its gardens in England will begin to reopen.
In order to comply with social distancing and other Government guidelines, all gardens will open in a system of pre-purchased tickets for a timed slot at the visitor’s garden of choice. Tickets must be purchased via the National Garden Scheme website.
Numbers of visitors per timed slot will vary from garden to garden, depending on size. These and all other relevant details can be found at a garden’s entry on the website.
Gardens will not offer teas or other refreshments, at some gardens where there is sufficient space, people will be allowed to bring their own picnics. All buildings will be closed and access to toilets will only be provided in an emergency and so long as it does not involve access to a house.
George Plumptre,Chief Executive of the National Garden Scheme comments, “We are delighted that we are able to open the gates of some of our gardens in England and welcome people. Right now our gardens are blossoming into their midsummer glories and so it is wonderful that our garden owners can share them with visitors.”.
Whether you are able to visit in person or continue to enjoy our virtual garden visits, they thank you for your continued support.
