Open Gardens

Explore Glyndebourne’s glorious grounds this summer

tickets: Adults £10 / Children £5 (INcludes free parking)

While away the hours exploring Glyndebourne’s grounds on one of our Open Gardens days. Take a leisurely stroll around the lake, enjoy the flowers, indulge in a take-away afternoon tea…

To ensure it’s a safe and relaxing experience, we’re limiting the number of visitors and asking everyone to arrive in an allocated time slot. There are five times to choose from, between 11.00am and 12.30pm. Once you’ve entered the gardens, you’re welcome to stay for as long as you like until the grounds close at 4.00pm.

Please note that each ticket order will be treated as a ‘household’. Please make multiple orders if booking for people outside your household.
