Visitor Information

We've introduced advanced booking to help keep everyone safe and to maintain social distancing. To avoid disappointment, please book in advance, especially at busier times such as bank holidays and weekends. However, where space is available, pre-booking may not always be necessary. If you do not book, we cannot guarantee admission. 

The garden will be open 10.30am-5.30pm, 7 days a week. 


The garden will be open to visitors with pre-booked tickets, available online via our What's On page or by calling 0344 249 1895. Garden tickets are limited to 200 per hour and are released each Friday for the following Monday - Sunday. Tickets are free for National Trust members, £10 per person for non-members. Walk-ins are welcome, subject to availability. Due to limited tickets, we’re asking that you only book once a week to allow others a chance to visit.


Staying safe at Lanhydrock

To help keep everyone safe, please follow social distancing and government guidance when you visit. And look out for signs while you’re here which will explain any changes to how you can access different parts of the site.

Tramper hire will be available from the Cycle hire building from Monday 29 March and must be booked in advance. To book, please email your preferred day to lanhydrockcyclehire@nationaltrust.org.uk. 

We are not able to offer PMVs on loan for use around the garden, as we can't guarantee adequate social distancing space on narrow paths beyond the parterre. 

The volunteer-operated access buggy service has now resumed. The service runs 12.30pm-4.30pm every day, between the reception and gatehouse buildings only. There is no pick-up or drop-off available from Respryn or the main car park. 



The main car park is a 15-minute walk downhill to the garden. The reception building will remain closed; please show your pre-booked tickets at the gatehouse. 

The main car park and Respryn car park will both be open as usual. Parking is free for National Trust members, £1 for an hour or £5 all day for non-members, payable by phone or app. The parking ticket machines are now able to accept cash, tickets can also be purchased by card from the Park Cafe, Plant centre and Cycle hire.
