Upgrading day tickets to memberships

Can I upgrade my ticket to a Garden Membership without visiting the garden?
No. You must have a valid receipt or upgrade code showing the purchase of a day pass for each adult and child you wish to add to your season ticket.
I purchased day tickets for more than 2 adults or 4 children, how can I add these to my Garden Membership?
If visitors pay for entry for more than 2 adults and 4 children we encourage you to contact either garden staff, or message Candide support staff through the app. As long as your receipt shows you have purchased a ticket for the people you would like to add to your Garden Membership, we can do this for you.
Can I add anyone as my second adult to my ticket?
Candide allows you to add any adult as long as full details are provided, and valid day passes have been used. Please note this does not apply to memberships.
