Midsummer picnic evenings

Enjoy exclusive access to the garden after-hours on the long midsummer evenings

  • Booking essential

Bring a picnic, or buy from our pop-up tent and enjoy the late evening sunshine on one of our midsummer evenings. Take in the special atmosphere in the garden as the sun sets over the lakes with a stroll on the floating pontoon or while enjoying a glass of Pimms (one drink included with each ticket).

Stargazing will also be taking place on the parkland after 9.30pm.
