Members’ Garden Tours

Join us for a tour of the garden before the opera begins.

A Festival Extra to complement your visit

Join us for a tour of the garden before the opera begins. Led by an expert guide, you will explore the Glyndebourne gardens, learning about the beautiful spaces that first began to take shape in the early 1900s and continue to evolve to this day. Discover more about the work that our Gardeners are currently undertaking to ensure it remains an inspirational space for audiences and artists alike.

Tours last approximately 1 hour and depart from outside the Box Office at 3.15pm in May, June and July, and at 2.15pm in August.

These are small group tours – with a maximum of 10 places per tour – and are available on a first come first served basis. They are free of charge to Members, but must be booked in advance. Your Garden Tour tickets will be sent to you, or you can arrange to pick them up from Box Office on the day.

Please note these tours entail walking around the Glyndebourne gardens, and may include a number of steps.
