Ten Winchelsea gardens will be open for the National Garden Scheme from 11am to 5pm on Saturday 18th June 2022.  

Combined admission to all the gardens in the group costs £8 for adults.  Children enter free.

You can pay for tickets online from our page on the NGS website:  ngs.org.uk  – or pay at the gate of the first garden you visit.  We can’t yet take contactless payments.  When you pay – or present your online ticket – you’ll be given a map showing the gardens and where to find teas.

Disabled access
Six of the gardens are completely or mostly accessible to wheelchair users.

There is ample off-road parking – follow the signs on the A259. The centre of Winchelsea is compact and the gardens will be well-signed.  Signs will also show you were to find refreshments and where to find the public toilets.

Coffee will be served at Winchelsea Church from 10.30am to 1pm.  Home-made teas in the New Hall from 2pm to 4.30.  Coffee and lunchtime food is available at the New Inn and takeaway drinks and snacks from the Little Shop.

Garden admission money will all go to the nursing charities supported by the NGS.  Proceeds from afternoon teas will be shared equally by the NGS and Friary Gardeners.  The Friary Gardeners project started in Winchelsea and offers horticultural training and greater independence to adults with a wide spectrum of learning difficulties.

Plants for sale
Friary Gardeners will be running a plant stall in Castle Street in aid of their funds. Click here for the Friary Gardeners website
