Garden Marquee

Situated in the orchard near the deli, the Garden Marquee is an under-cover option with views across the gardens.

The Garden Marquee offers shelter against the elements during inclement weather, and the panels will be opened on warmer days, creating a shady retreat from the sunshine.

Greenhouse Marquee

The Greenhouse Marquee is adjacent to the Archive Gallery and the main car park. It accommodates up to 200 customers, and the panels will be opened during warmer weather. Picnic tables and chairs are provided.

Subject to availability, a limited number of places in the Greenhouse Marquee may be available to use free of charge on the day, on a first-come-first-served basis. These will be available from the time the gardens open on the day of your visit.
