The Botanic Garden has been designed to be accessible to all visitors whatever their ability. All paths within the formal Garden area are wheelchair friendly and there are several motor powered and manual wheelchairs available at our Gatehouse, for a minimum donation of £3. It is advisable to ring 01558 667149 before your visit to book one of these. As a charity, we rely on donations of wheelchairs and scooters so if you can help us, could you ring the same number above. We, and some of our physically impaired visitors, would be very grateful.

We also have a regular shuttle buggy service to take you to most parts of the Garden and return you to the Gatehouse. On some days, we also have a land train that takes visitors around the Garden. Our buggy and land train drivers will also be happy to answer any questions you have about your visit.

Sorry but no pets are allowed into the Botanic Garden except Guide Dogs. For the safety of all our viistors, we also do not allow bicycles or children’s scooters (excluding mobility scooters).
