Pensthorpe 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.

Four beautiful gardens, a wildflower meadow and nature trails await you in this 700-acre haven. Enjoy Piet Oudolf’s stunning prairie garden, the serene wave garden with lush foliage, and the vibrant Corten infinity garden. The wildlife habitat garden offers a wealth of ideas to help boost your own garden’s biodiversity.


At Pensthorpe, the lakes, scrapes and wetlands are havens for a fabulous array of waders and wildfowl. There’s even a ‘flamboyance’ of flamingos! Look out for the aerial acrobatics of marsh harriers and the languid wheeling of buzzards and listen for the distinctive boom of the bittern.

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.
