Wakehurst is open for you to enjoy our magnificent gardens during these difficult times.

With over 500 acres to explore, there is plenty of space for you to roam safely through our wild botanic garden. You can always find a quiet spot to reconnect with nature and we hope your visit provides much-needed fresh air and respite.

To keep our visitors and staff safe, we have established a host of measures to support social distancing - please follow onsite guidance whilst on site. In accordance with government requirements, our indoor attractions including the Mansion, Millennium Seed Bank, our gift shop and dine-in catering outlets are closed. Take away catering is still available from the Stables Pantry. Please check the latest COVID-19 guidance on visiting the gardens before you travel.

We care for some of the world's rarest plant species. To help us preserve our beautiful gardens, we have some do's and don'ts;
Including the following:
• Only registered disability assistance dogs are allowed in the gardens and must be on a lead - please leave your pets at home
• Help protect our plants and trees so everyone can enjoy them - climbing, picking or pruning is not allowed
• Bicycles, tricycles, roller skates, skateboards, micro-scooters, balance bikes and other vehicles (except powered wheelchairs) must be left at the gates
• To protect our lawns, ball games and sports (including jogging) are not allowed in the gardens.
Please see here for further information.

If you or your guest has symptoms of COVID-19, or you are self-isolating, you must not book or visit the gardens.

We would encourage you to wear a face covering during your visit, when using the more frequently used paths and, when in the Carriage Ring area. For more information visit www.gov.uk.
