REOPEN 1ST MARCH 2024
No need to pre-book your visit.
We are pleased to have had another year without restrictions or a need to have a booking system (as we did during the pandemic). We still have a few measures in place for anyone who is concerned about Covid as we believe it is a good thing to keep our customers and our staff as safe as possible.
Covid-19 safety measures remain in place – including:
- Offering hand sanitiser at several locations in our shop.
- Keeping protective screens in place at the counter.
- Shop is kept well ventilated – with a large extractor fan and many doors and windows open during the summer time.
LATEST INFORMATION (From 27th January 2022 copied from Gov.uk)-
27 January , this guidance applies to ENGLAND
You no longer need to wear a face covering, but consider wearing one in crowded, enclosed spaces where you may come into contact with people you do not normally meet.
What does this mean if you are visiting The Japanese Garden?
The garden and nursery areas are all outdoor and our only indoor space is our Indoor Bonsai house and gift shop.
Wearing a face covering is now optional when entering our indoor spaces and we would ask that if the shop or indoor Bonsai house appears busy with visitors that you consider wearing a mask – this is to protect each other and our wonderful staff.
No need to pre-book – Our Booking system has now been removed and there is currently no need to pre-book your visit to us. We will keep an eye on how 2022 unfolds and if we need to reinstate the booking system we will do so if the situation shows a need for it.
Please check the latest government guidance found on the GOV.UK website.
Key points –
- Please follow all directional signage, use the hand sanitisation points that are available.
- Please feel free to bring a packed lunch, just please take your litter home with you.
- Please love the Garden as much as we do and take your rubbish home; leave us only your footprints.

Season Ticket is valid from the date purchased; until the 31st October of the same year.
