About the Garden

  • Students: free
Please note; the entrance charge could change for an event. 

          *The adult gate entry fee of £5.50 includes a 50p voluntary donation which UK taxpayers' can pay, allowing the                             Botanic Garden to benefit from a 25% refund of tax from the government on each adult ticket. This means that a                         £5.50 entry fee provides a boost to our funds of an additional £1.38 at no additional cost to yourself.  

            If you are not a UK taxpayer, or do not wish to make this voluntary donation, then please let the Welcome Lodge                         volunteers know so you pay the non gift aid entry fee of £5.00 per adult.
