Day tickets


Due to the increased footfall we have decided to implement timed and dated tickets.

Your chosen slot has a 30 minute window to arrive at the ticket office.  Once on site you can stay as long as you like but must vacate the car park by 5 pm.

Please choose your tickets at the next stage, children under 4 do not need to pay but do need to book a time slot.

Friends of Batsford DO NOT need to book a timed slot.

Reciprocal garden members must book a timed slot and will need to show their membership card along with the online ticket booking.  Please refer to the list.

You must present a valid ticket (and membership card if applicable) upon arrival.  Without your membership card or ticket you may be refused entry

  • Children's bikes (including balance bikes), scooters, frisbees and footballs are not permitted onsite.

  • Picnics are not permitted in the Arboretum and there are designated picnic sites, please ask a  member of staff on arrival.

  • Well-behaved dogs are welcome on a short lead (not an extendable one).

  • All facilities are subject to closure for technical,operational or safety reasons. 

Pre-booking is available on a day to day basis until tickets have sold out. Without a booked ticket we cannot guarantee entry on the day.
