Tours 2020

Due to the continued work and development to the new Physic garden, the gardens will remain closed for group visits in 2020.  The groups that are already booked in for next year will go ahead as normal and we still hope to hold the NGS Open Day in the September 2020.

We will definitely be open in 2021 and look forward to seeing you then!

Tours 2019

The garden will be closed to visitors in 2019.

We will be embarking on a new venture in 2019 creating a new Physic and Medicinal Garden and a memorial garden to Mr John Thackray who sadly passed away in January this year.

In the meantime, please look out for updates and information on the website and our Facebook page.

We look forward to seeing you in 2020.
