Changes to your visit this summer

Those who know us well may be surprised to find our gardens are a little different at the moment. Please watch this short video about what to expect.

We’re making visitor and staff safety our top priority, so we’re asking visitors to be aware of not overcrowding one another on some of our narrow footpaths and in the toilets.
