Visiting the Garden

Plan your visit

Let’s get the important stuff out of the way first of all – it is important for all our safety and please read all the following before you plan your visit.

1. We will be asking staff and visitors to follow government guidance on social distancing.  ie 2m between you , other visitors and all our staff.

Sussex Prairies is a large open space and gives plenty of scope for a safe visit in the restful open air and beautiful sussex countryside .

2.  If you see other visitors please take an alternative route or hang back and keep your distance. Please be respectful if queuing for tickets, and keep 2 metres distance from those around you.

Sussex Prairies will be setting up some one way routes in the garden to help you do this- but it’s your responsibility to make this work for everyone. So please use common sense.

3. At the Ticket Office, Teashop Kiosk and Plant Sales Gazebo, Payments can be taken with contactless credit / debit card or in cash if you prefer.

4.You can  prepay for your entry ticket online prior to your visit if you prefer – but you dont need to as there is no need to prebook to come to Sussex Prairies . You will need to bring proof with you of that prepayment – as a printout or on a smart phone and if you have any offer cards these will also need to be shown.

5. We will have six toilets open . The toilets will be cleaned at the beginning of each days opening and will be checked regularly during the day . We will provide sanitising gel and hand wipes at the toilets . If you wish to use the toilet It is your responsibility to use the products we have made available for safe use and always  WASH YOUR HANDS ! 

6.If you wish to visit the garden regularly, you may wish to buy one of our excellent value SEASON TICKETS, which will allow you entry as often as you like, without requiring you to pay each time you visit. Only £20 for an individual ticket and £40 for a family ticket (admits two adults and up to three children)

Please enquire at the ticket office if you would like to buy a Season ticket.

A season ticket for Sussex Prairies in 2020 can also be used at Borde Hill Garden with whom we have a partnership this year ! So two gardens for the price of one ! (please check the Borde Hill website for their opening hours and visiting conditions – you will need to book a pre booked slot for visiting them this season)

7. The Teashop will operate as a kiosk serving Takeaway teas, coffee and homemade cakes and ice cream which you can enjoy throughout the garden.  There will be no sandwiches or savouries on offer.It is simple fare with our same great homemade cakes on offer.

Enjoy our stunning garden throughout the season. We encourage visitors to walk right into the flower beds and enjoy the plants up close – a unique experience.

We love dogs at Sussex Prairie Gardens and we are one of the few gardens that welcome them.

We provide water bowls at the cafe. We do ask that you please keep them under control on a short lead and that you clear up after them. We provide bags and bins.
