What's On

Online timed ticket booking system

Tuesday 1 September 2020 to
Tuesday 31 August 2021

We are currently operating an online timed and dated admission ticket system for the arboretum in order to help keep all visitors and staff safe. 

Tickets are available to buy via our website ONLY: www.batsarb.co.uk/tickets

Your chosen slot will give you a 30 minute window to arrive at the ticket office. Once on site, you can stay as long as you like but must vacate the car park by 5pm.

If you’re a current Batsford member (Friend of Batsford) you DO NOT need to book a timed slot and can visit any day, just show your membership card on arrival as normal (children accompanying members do not need to book either).

Complimentary Batsford ticket holders do not need to book a timed slot, please just bring proof of free entry/your complimentary ticket.

If you bought a ticket online before 1st September 2020, your ticket will still be honoured and you do not need to book a timed slot.

ALL other visitors will need to book a timed slot, including:

  • Those requiring standard tickets (including children under 4 years (free of charge));
  • Members of reciprocal gardens including Westonbirt Arboretum, Bodenham Arboretum, Bedgebury Arboretum and Sir Harold Hillier Gardens (please show your membership card upon arrival along with your online ticket booking);
  • RHS members (please show your RHS membership card upon arrival along with your online ticket booking);
  • Gardener’s World 2 for 1 pass holders - both visitors (please show your 2 for 1 pass upon arrival along with your online ticket booking);
  • Caravan Club Members (please show your Caravan Club membership card upon arrival along with your online ticket booking);
  • Ernest Wilson Trust members (please show your Ernest Wilson membership card upon arrival along with your online ticket booking);
  • Moreton Show members (please show your Moreton Show membership card upon arrival along with your online ticket booking).

ALL visitors must provide either an online booking reference number or their booking name (alongside proof of any free or discounted entry (e.g. Westonbirt card)), or show a valid Batsford membership card if applicable, to gain entry into the arboretum. Without your membership card or booking you may be refused entry.

Tickets can be bought right up until the day you intend to visit, providing there are slots available. 

Thank you for your support and understanding,
The Batsford Foundation Team.
