Mount Stewart 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 461 gardens.

Due to the mild local climate, many exotic plants thrive in these beautiful gardens. The formal areas have a Mediterranean feel, with fountains, colonnades and richly planted borders, while the wooded areas are filled with plants from all over the world, including rhododendrons and magnolias. Take the lake walk to see the seasons reflected in the tranquil waters, and look for red squirrels along the way.


Important update

With the gradual easing of lockdown restrictions, gardens in the 2-for-1 directory are beginning to open.

To ensure the safety of visitors and staff, many have special measures in place, including pre-booking and limiting the number of visitors.

Before visiting a garden, please contact the garden directly to determine their opening status and any restrictions that may apply.

Please note: we’re unable to keep all individual 2-for-1 garden pages updated, but we will publish the latest details that we have on our weekly updates page from week commencing Monday 8 June, 2020.
