What will be open

The Garden of Surprises will be open, although there will be limited access to certain areas and all interactive/contact water features remain off. The Sculpture Garden will be fully open including our new areas of herbaceous planting and a selection of new sculptures, including this year's Sculpture Exhibition - House.

When you arrive and what to expect

Please remember to bring your time slot ticket along with your Gardens ticket, Friends of Burghley or HH Card to the entry kiosks to be scanned. Time slot reservations can be shown on mobile phone or by printed copy.

We wish to provide you with a contactless experience and are unable to provide you with any physical tickets or information leaflets at the entry point. However, if you wish to exit and re-enter the gardens at any time within your time slot we can re-scan your original ticket.

You can download our Gardens Mini Guide here.

Maintaining your safety on arrival

Please be assured that there will be a member of our team at the entrance gates, behind a perspex screen, wearing the recommended PPE, to welcome you and to be available should you need any assistance.

You will see hand sanitiser stations around the site, which we encourage you to use.

We have placed distance markers and will be using signs to encourage anyone queuing to maintain a 2-metre gap. However, pre-booking an arrival time online will help us to manage the flow of people through the ticket kiosks and into the gardens. Every measure we have put in place is in line with current government guidelines.

There is no public Wi-Fi available in the Gardens.
