It is the first Grandparents’ Day being celebrated at the gardens and Estate Manager Ray Sinnott said he feels it is an important occasion to mark in 2020.

“We all know that for many months of this year grandparents sadly lost the opportunity to spend time with their grandchildren as they were cocooning,” said Ray.

“We are delighted to open the gates to Grandparents and enable them to come and enjoy some time exploring nature with their Grandchildren to mark national grandparents Day. We all know it has been a difficult year for families and especially for the more senior members of the family so we want to give back this opportunity to families for us all of appreciating all the joy and wisdom that grandparents bring to our lives.”

All tickets to the gardens need to be pre-booked in advance, free tickets to a grandparent will be allocated with any accompanying child or another adult ticket. Children’s and adult tickets can be pre-booked at
