We are thrilled to be a Royal Horticultural Society Partner Garden. The RHS is a UK charity established to share the best in gardening. Their aim is to enrich everyone’s life through plants, and make the UK a greener and more beautiful place. We share their passion for plants and also believe that gardeners make the world a better place!

As one of the more than 200 independent gardens across the UK and overseas, we support the charitable work of the RHS by offering members free entry at selected times of the year. Other Partner Gardens include Blenheim PalaceHever Castle and Ripley Castle so we are pleased to be included within such a prestigious group.

If you would like to support the Royal Horticultural Society please have a look at for more details.

How does the RHS choose RHS Partner Gardens?

Whether formal landscape, late-season borders or woodland, all Partner Gardens offer inspiration to keen gardeners through high standards of design and/or planting. Many are well known, some less so, resulting in a stimulating mix of styles that visitors should find interesting throughout the gardening year.

What is an RHS Partner Garden?

In addition to the four RHS Gardens, more than 200 independent gardens across the UK and overseas, generously support the charitable work of the RHS by offering our members free entry at selected times of the year.

Many gardens allow free entry whenever they are open but, as they are forgoing their income in order to support horticulture and the RHS, not all are able to do this.  Check free entry dates and times carefully before travelling.

When visiting Partner Gardens, why not show your support by visiting their plant centres, shops and cafes, to support the great work they do in sustaining beautiful gardens for us all to enjoy.

Who can gain free entry?

  • All Individual RHS members.

  • For Joint memberships, free entry applies to one cardholder per policy (member 1) as indicated by an asterisk (*) on the back of your membership card.

  • Life members. For Joint Life memberships, free entry applies to both members.

Please note:

  • Free entry to Partner Gardens does not apply to guests

  • Group entry: so that smaller gardens can be part of the scheme, free entry does not apply to members travelling as part of an organised group. Please contact the garden in advance to discuss group visits.


When can I gain free entry?

Free admission will be available (as described above) on Mondays & Fridays ONLY throughout our open season.

As independently owned gardens, not financially reimbursed by the RHS, opening times, prices and periods of free access are subject to change.

Remember, you will need your membership card to gain entry.

Where can I see a full list of RHS Partner Gardens?
