South Gardens Reopening

We are delighted to announce the reopening of the South Gardens this year!

We know how much you missed visiting the private South Gardens last year and we cannot wait to present to you our magnificent seasonal displays and spring bulbs give an injection of formality into ‘Capability’ Brown’s sweeping vistas. The South Gardens, designed by ‘Capability’ Brown from 1757 has wonderful views of the lake, Lion Bridge and the park beyond. Visitors can discover the ‘Capability’ Brown designed summer house overlooking the lake, the oak circle and enjoy swathes of spring snow drops and nodding daffodils in the gardens.

This year, we have made some changes to ensure that we can maintain visitor and staff safety. Therefore, entry to the South Gardens will be via the Garden Kiosks. Each morning and afternoon timed session will have limited capacities.

Admission to the South Gardens will be ticketed this year and entrance to the South Gardens will be made through our Garden Kiosks. This will enable us to monitor visitor numbers whilst adhering to Covid-19 safety measures. To enter the South Gardens; you must pre-book a Gardens time slot ticket and make sure you have a valid Gardens ticket. The South Gardens is open in aid of the Evergreen Trust. Whilst the South Gardens are open, a donation from your entry fee will be made in support of the Evergreen Trust.

To pre-book your time slot ticket along with your Gardens Only ticket, please go to Visiting the Gardens.
