The oldest botanic garden in the UK, and home to over 5,000 different plant species.
You can buy a ticket on the door on the day of your visit. We recommend that you pre-book online during busy periods, especially during weekends and holidays, as entry is not guaranteed. Bookings are non-refundable and non-transferrable; we cannot amend these over the phone, so please take care when selecting the day and time.
We strongly recommend that groups of 15+ pre-book on our group visits page- entry cannot be guaranteed during busy periods.
Occasionally there are closures to the Glasshouses or parts of our site for general maintenance, education groups, and events. Please view our Opening Hours page, which is updated on a weekly basis, or contact our office in advance of your visit if you would like to check a specific date.
