Polesden Lacey's Rose Festival
Prepare to be tickled pink, white and yellow by the gorgeous blooms on show.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
Our Rose Festival celebrates this beautiful flower in the gardens but also throughout the house, cafe and gift shop.
Sheltered in this walled garden, the shrub and bush roses will be in full flush, lighting up the beds with colour, and filling the air with scent.
There will be talks by our gardeners every Wednesday and Friday on rose folklore and care, floral arrangements in the house, rose inspired cake and even a mini potpourri bar in the potting shed.

What is Gift Aid?
Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.
Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:
- Gift Aid Admission
- Standard Admission
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.
Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:
|Amount paid by visitor||£11.00||£10.00|
|Tax refund from Government*||£2.75||£0.00|
|Total received by the National Trust||£13.75||£10.00|
*Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
National Trust members and under 5s are free.
Late entry pricing: we offer a reduced entry price if you arrive during the last hour of house opening.
£1 restaurant voucher if arriving by public transport (present valid ticket at visitor reception).
Parking for non-members: £2 up to and including 2 hours, £5 all day.

- The rose garden was transformed during Margaret Greville's time from a vegetable garden into a sheltered haven filled with many varieties of her favourite flower, the rose. This was a highlight of any visit for her esteemed guests and she is pictured here frequently, proudly showing off the roses to dukes, kings and maharajas. A poignant reminder of Maggie's love of roses is the Greville Rose, specially bred for the National Trust by Peter Beales rose growers and also coming into bloom in June. This exclusive variety is planted just outside the walled rose garden, in front of the Edwardian socialite' grave, and is available to buy from the Polesden Lacey garden shop. A huge amount of work and investment has gone into restoring the rose garden in recent years, including renovating all the path and replanting many of the rambling roses on the pergola. There is no doubt Maggie would have been delighted by the enjoyment our visitors get from her beautiful rose garden today.
