The gardens are open to ticket holders on Tuesdays and Fridays from April to September. Entry is from 10am, and the Gardens close at 4pm. Coach parties cannot be accommodated.

How accessible are the gardens?
All visitors must remain on lawns and paths. There are gravel and grass paths, with gentle slopes and no steps. There are occasional benches.

Are the gardens suitable for children?
Children are welcome in the care of a responsible adult, but the gardens are intended for the quiet enjoyment of visitors, there is no play or activity area, and ball games or activities involving flying objects such as kites or model aircraft are not allowed. Each adult may be accompanied by up to two children who must always be supervised by them, particularly near water.
