Family friendly gardens

Family friendly gardens

From miniature railways and fairy gardens, to farm animals and treasure trails – discover our family-friendly gardens open across England and Wales for the National Garden Scheme.

You’re guaranteed a warm welcome and plenty of homemade cake at a National Garden Scheme garden, and with many offering free entry for children and an average adult admission of just £4.50, it’s a great value day out for the whole family.

Some gardens hold nominated open days where you can just turn up, others open “by arrangement” meaning you can contact the garden owner direct and arrange a visit at a convenient time for your family or group. Click on the individual gardens to find out more.

So why not plan a day out with the children or grandchildren and begin a life long love of gardens?

N.B. Gardens are listed in county order. Children must be supervised in National Garden Scheme gardens at all times. Some gardens may have open water and uneven surfaces. Please contact the garden owner directly before your visit if you have any queries regarding suitability for your children or grandchildren.
