Barnsdale Gardens 2-for-1 entry

Get one free entry with one full-paying adult, with your Gardeners’ World Magazine 2-for-1 entry card. Valid at 392 gardens.

Brimming with inspiration, variety and beauty, Barnsdale is the former – and iconic – home of Gardeners’ World. Initially created by much-loved presenter Geoff Hamilton, these eco-friendly, organic, peat-free gardens now offer 38 individually designed areas full of choice plants and creative ideas. There are original and new gardens to explore, including a wildlife garden, reclaimed garden, winter border, and much more.

Check before you travel

Before setting off check the garden’s website or call direct, as opening details can vary and one-off restrictions may apply.

We advise checking the garden’s own website or calling them direct to ensure the published details are accurate, as opening times and restrictions may vary.

Always take your 2 for 1 card with you

Some gardens have pre-booking systems in place – take your 2 for 1 card with you to validate your booking.

If a garden offers both pre-booking and walk-up options, we recommend booking prior to your visit to avoid disappointment should the garden be busy.

Please don’t make multiple pre-bookings or share your 2 for 1 card – card misuse will invalidate your discount claim at the garden.
