Acorn Bank 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.

Within the series of walled gardens you’ll find an extensive herb garden with more than 250 different medicinal and culinary plants, vegetable plots and colourful herbaceous borders, as well as traditional fruit orchards with many local apple varieties. The woodlands offer attractive walks, with many beautiful trees and shrubs, plus plenty of wildlife and wildflowers to look out for along the way.

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.
