Joining the Gardens and becoming a member makes sense
Our visitors use the Gardens in a myriad of ways.
To walk the dog, have a moment of calm, have a picnic under the blossoms with friends, to get close up to tadpoles, build a den or watch the flowers grow.
We are an independent charitable trust and love to keep the prices low, so we can share the gardens with as many people as possible.
By becoming a Member, you get repeated access to the Gardens at a bargain price and you are helping the Trust to care for these important and wonderful Gardens. Memberships, and donations, all contribute directly to the provision of equipment, plants, events and amenities for the Gardens and visitors. It all helps us to invest in the future.
