Waterperry Gardens

Waterperry Gardens are open for visitors. To access the ornamental gardens please pre-book a time slot in advance of your visit via our website How to Book

Although there is now a limited amount of garden entry tickets available on the door we strongly recommend pre-booking to avoid any disappointment. There is no need for season ticket holders to pre-book.

The Garden shop, Gift Barn, Gallery (Fri-Tue) and Museum are also open, if you are fit and well and not in a high-risk group, you would be very welcome to visit. In order that we meet the current guidelines, for now, the maximum number of visitors per group will be six individuals or two households. 

The Teashop is now open with outdoor seating and limited pre-booked indoor seating (please phone 01844 338087 to book your table).

The Garden Shop continues to do online and telephone sales and local deliveries.

Just a stone’s throw from Oxford and within easy reach of London nestles Waterperry Gardens.

Made famous by Beatrix Havergal who established her School of Horticulture for Ladies here from 1932 to 1971, it’s now home to 8 acres of beautifully landscaped ornamental gardens, a quality plant centre and garden shopgallery and gift shopmuseum and tea shop.

We are open all year round (except between Christmas and New Year’s Day), 10am to 5.30pm between April 1st and October 31st and 10am to 5pm in the winter.

There is a charge to look around the gardens, but access to the rest of the estate is free.
Please note dogs are allowed on a short lead around the estate and garden centre but are NOT allowed within the paid entrance ornamental gardens. For more information about Waterperry and prices for visiting the gardens, please click here.
