When visiting our Parminster Garden, you must book a time slot online before your visit.

The health and safety of our visitors and staff remains a top priority. With this in mind, we are implementing new measures to help protect you. That is why we have introduced time slot tickets to help us minimise queuing and facilitate physical distancing.

  • Entry to the Parminster Garden remains free.
  • Everyone including members, carers, children and babies must book a time slot ticket. Under 14's must be accompanied by an adult.
  • Bookings can be made for up to a maximum of 8 tickets.
  • Your chosen time slot/entry time will be displayed on the top left corner of your ticket(s) which will be attached to your confirmation email. Please have your tickets ready for scanning upon entry.
  • To reduce queuing, please do not arrive before your chosen time slot. You have up to 45 minutes after your selected time slot to gain entry. Once you're inside the garden, you can stay as long as you like.
  • Our arrangements for visitors have temporarily changed: See OUR FAQs at
