What's on

Please book ahead before visiting

Hare Hill is open for local visitors and you’ll need to book your tickets by 3pm the day before your visit. Members can book for free, while non-members will need to pay when booking. Please note the car park is for pre-booked visitors only and no dogs other than guide dogs are permitted in the garden. We'll be releasing tickets every Friday. To avoid disappointment, please book in advance, especially at busier times such as weekends, school holidays and bank holidays. For the safety of visitors and livestock, the permissive path to the Hare Hill car park from Alderley Edge will be temporarily closed from Saturday 17 April, as there are cows with new calves out on the farmland. We're looking forward to welcoming you back.

How to book your visit and what to expect 

Our gardens, parks, cafés, shops and countryside locations are open to visit. Subject to government confirmation, we're planning to reopen houses in England and Wales from 17 May, and in Northern Ireland from 24 May. Advance booking for visits helps us keep everyone safe and socially distanced. At quieter times such as weekdays, booking shouldn't be necessary, but to guarantee entry we recommend booking in advance, especially at weekends and bank holidays.
