Additional notes

On the Guide Map, we have marked routes suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs. Due to some areas of the gardens having steps and being inaccessible, the admission price for wheelchair is half price, which is reflective of the access available. See the all-ability access route in yellow on our guide map.
