This winter, the Garden will be open 10am – 4pm (please note Christmas closure dates below).
Enjoy the bright colours, winter fragrances and textural bark on show in our Winter Garden; explore alpine through to tropical delights in the warmth of our Glasshouse Range or visit the International Garden Photographer of the Year (IGPOTY) exhibition on display in our Autumn Garden.
Also keep an eye out of for our Snowdrop trail which will be available at the Garden gates, once the snowdrops appear mid-late January. This will guide you to the snowdrop ‘hot spots’, scattered throughout the Garden and will include information about the varieties we grow, ‘how to grow tips’, snowdrop science, history and folklore. Our snowdrops are expected to be in bloom from late January to late-February.
From 12 January, on every Sunday until 23 February, you can enjoy a free-of-charge Garden tour with one of our expert guides. Taking in the Garden’s winter highlights these Free Drop-in Winter Interest Tours start at 2pm.
Visit our What’s On pages to find out what else is on offer and see the menu at the bottom of the page for specific events and gift ideas.
We hope you’ll feel refreshed and inspired, even on the gloomiest of winter days!
