As we slowly come out of lockdown it certainly feels good. Visitor numbers to our gardens, which have already been open for 2021, are certainly showing this. From now until 16th May visitors must pre-book their tickets. From 17th May pre-booked tickets are not essential, but generally available. New since last month: We now have the Hampshire 2021 Yellow Booklet as an e-book.
