2-for-1 Gardens 2020 Card and Guide

About 2-for-1 Gardens

Enjoy 2-for-1 entry to 461 beautiful gardens using your 2-for-1 entry card, distributed with the May issue of BBC Gardeners' World Magazine.

Important update: In response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many public gardens across the UK are currently closed, but some gardens are now re-opening to the public.
To maintain social distancing, the majority are requesting that visitors pre-book before visiting. We will collate information about the gardens as soon as possible – please visit this page again shortly for further details. Some gardens may temporarily restrict third party discounts – please contact gardens directly before visiting to avoid disappointment.


About this year’s 2-for-1 guide

This year we’ve packed 461 gardens into the biggest-ever 2-for-1 Gardens to Visit scheme. Benefits of the scheme include:

How to use your 2-for-1 card

  1. We hope that it won’t be too long before the gardens in our 2-for-1 scheme re-open to the public. However, due the situation with coronavirus, there may be some changes to the garden details printed in the 2020 guide.  We will ensure our online 2-for-1 directory is as up-to-date as possible. We do always ask you to check with the gardens before you travel – this year it will be particularly important that you do, to avoid a wasted journey
  2. When you have determined the garden you wish to visit is open, present your entry card at the entrance to receive your discount
  3. Keep your reusable 2020 card in a safe place – you can use it until Friday 9 April, 2021
