We welcome coach parties and have a free coach parking area. Coaches and parties of more than 20 must book in advance, and guided tours can also be arranged. Please call our office on 01844 339254 or email email@example.com for information and bookings.
We welcome visits from gardening societies, cultural, leisure, business and other groups and we have meeting facilities on site which are available for hire. Special packages can be organised, including talks by Waterperry experts or guided tours of the garden. We’re happy to consider any ideas, so please give us a call.
Pre-booking allows us to limit the number of coaches visiting each day, ensuring your party does not have to compete with hordes of other people in our gardens and at other facilities.
Wherever possible we meet and greet all coaches and offer incentives for drivers, including free access to our ornamental gardens.
If you would like us to organise a special event for your group please contact us as far in advance as possible.

Our delightful tea shop serves morning coffee, light lunches and afternoon teas. The food is freshly prepared each day from fresh ingredients, and we’re also licensed to sell wine and beer. Lunches are served between 12 and 2pm, with all food selected from our counters. If coach party lunches are not booked in advance we can’t guarantee the full range of food will always be available to our visitors. Coach coffee stops are also available but must also be booked in advance.
Parking/Meet and Greet
Whenever possible a member of staff will meet your coach at the entrance. All we ask is that you call us on 07548903272 ten minutes before you arrive so that we can be ready for you. We will direct your coach driver to a parking space. Tickets and information will then be given to your party on the coach and our staff will be available to make sure that your visit goes smoothly.
All buildings at Waterperry are accessible by wheelchair users and those with limited mobility, and we have disabled toilets and parking places. Wheelchairs are available on site, but you may want to call and book one if you’re planning to visit during traditionally busy times.
The gardens are mainly flat with good accessibility. Most paths are gravel surfaced and this may make wheelchair pushing hard in some areas. If you have any concerns please call us beforehand and we’ll do our best to accommodate any specific needs.
We don’t take group bookings on any Bank Holiday Sunday or Monday throughout the season as these are already busy times for us and we don’t want to spoil anyone’s enjoyment.
We look forward to welcoming you to Waterperry Gardens and are confident you’ll enjoy your visit.
Please note that your booking is not confirmed until we have contacted you personally by e-mail, telephone or in writing.
