Buy tickets

Horatio’s Garden Stoke Mandeville will be opening in support of the National Garden Scheme on Sunday 29th August from 2pm – 5pm. 

As the garden is situated within a hospital, this will be a ticketed event with timed entry, with a maximum of 30 people entering hourly at 2pm, 3pm and 4pm.  

Pre-booking is therefore essential, so to secure your tickets please click here, or simply click the ‘Buy Tickets’ button at the top of this page. 

Admission costs £5 per adult, whilst children are welcome in the garden for free. 

Every ticket sold goes directly towards supporting the incredible work of the National Garden Scheme. 

Whilst this year’s restrictions mean our National Garden Scheme Open Day won’t be quite as busy as usual, the wonderful thing is that you’ll be part of a small, exclusive group exploring the garden for the first time in almost two years. 

Having opened in September 2018 at the National Spinal Injuries Centre in Stoke Mandeville Hospital, Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, HP21 8AL, this stunning sanctuary has only welcomed supporters on behalf of the National Garden Scheme on one prior occasion. 

As such, this is an unparalleled opportunity to discover a uniquely gorgeous, fully accessible garden, one which was designed by RHS Chelsea Gold Medal Winner and long-time presenter of BBC Gardeners’ World, Joe Swift.

Everything in the oasis is of exceptional quality, including the contemporary garden room, designed by architect Andrew Wells, and the impressive Griffin Glasshouse. The haven also features a wonderful wildflower meadow, secret woodland garden, a host of highly perennial planting and plenty of evergreen trees and grasses. 

Head Gardener, Amy Moffett, as well as the charity’s volunteers will be waiting to welcome you and already they are excited by the prospect of telling everyone more about the garden. 

You will also have the chance to indulge in some delicious tea and homemade cake, pick up a plethora of foliage grown in the garden and purchase a selection of our beautifully bespoke merchandise, with all the money raised supporting Horatio’s Garden. 

We’ll look forward to seeing you in Horatio’s Garden Stoke Mandeville in August!
