Due to the increased footfall we have decided to implement timed and dated tickets , it is essential to keep all visitors and staff safe.
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.
In addition to our standard event terms and conditions:
You must present a valid ticket (and membership card if applicable) upon arrival. Without your membership card or ticket you may be refused entry
All visitors must follow the government guidelines on social distancing. If you start having COVID-19 symptoms or have had any contact with a person with COVID-19 in the last 14 days then please stay at home.
Children's bikes, scooters, footballs are not permitted onsite.
Children must be asked to maintain a 2 metre distance from other visitors.
Picnics are not permitted in the Arboretum and there are designated picnic sites, please ask a member of staff on arrival.
Dogs are welcome on a short lead not an extendable one.

Gift Aid allows charities like us to reclaim tax (25p for every £1) from the government on your donations. If you are a UK taxpayer, by opting to Gift Aid you enable us to treat your payment as a donation, so each £1 you spend can do £1.25 of good.
Please treat my payment as a Gift Aid donation. I confirm I have paid or will pay an amount of Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax for the current tax year (April 6 2021 to April 5 2022) that is at least equal to the amount of tax that all the charities or Community Amateur Sports Clubs will reclaim on my gifts for this tax year. I understand that other taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify. I understand the charity will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give. I acknowledge that these Gift Aided tickets are for myself or members of my family.
Please do NOT treat my payment as a Gift Aid donation.
