What's on

We've got lots coming up such as garden tours and a car display.

There's also our apple days in October to look forward to as well as our last Wild Wednesday of the year and Hallowe'en trail during half-term.

Family fun

There's plenty of fun things for families to do together such as follow one of our seasonal trails or solve the giant maze.

You can also hunt for bugs, build a den and more as you complete our list of  50 things to do before you're 11 ¾.

New Rose Garden

Our Rose Garden is still in bloom. Over 900 repeat flowering roses in shades of red, orange and yellow have been in flower since June. If you're making a special visit to our Rose Garden, please call to get the latest information first.

South Terrace slide

As work continues to save the South Terrace, we’ve re-installed our giant slide and created a new viewing platform. Open weekends and holidays 1-4.30pm subject weather conditions.

Suggested sliding donation £2.

Great British Walk

Autumn is a great time of year to enjoy a Great British Walk in our woodlands.

Discover golden and bronze leaved trees, leading to views out over lush green pasture and the shimmering River Thames below.

First World War

Within months of the start of the First World War, a hospital was opened in the grounds here to treat injured soldiers.

One hundred years on, the memorial garden in which those that died were buried can still be visited today.
