As of Tuesday 1st September we will be introducing online timed and dated admission tickets for the arboretum in order to help keep all visitors and staff safe. This is due to an increase in footfall, which we expect to rise as we move into our busy autumn period. If you've already bought a ticket online (before 1st September 2020), your ticket will still be honoured and you do not need to book a timed slot.
From 1st September, tickets are available to buy via our website ONLY: www.batsarb.co.uk/tickets
Your chosen slot will give you a 30 minute window to arrive at the ticket office. Once on site, you can stay as long as you like but must vacate the car park by 5pm.
If you’re a current Batsford member (Friend of Batsford) you DO NOT need to book a timed slot and can visit any day, just show your membership card on arrival as normal (children accompanying members do not need to book either).
Complimentary Batsford ticket holders do not need to book a timed slot, please just bring proof of free entry/your complimentary ticket.
ALL other visitors will need to book a timed slot, including:
ALL visitors must present either a valid online admission ticket (alongside proof of any discounted or free entry (e.g. RHS card)), or valid Batsford membership card if applicable, to gain entry into the arboretum. Without your membership card or ticket you may be refused entry.
Tickets can be bought right up until the day you intend to visit, providing there are slots available.
Thank you for your support and understanding,
The Batsford Foundation Team.
