You will not be required to purchase a Gardens entry ticket if you are only attending the Carols event, but your Carols entry ticket will only allow you into the concert area, not the Gardens.

The Carols start at 20h00, and the concert venue gates open at 17h00 – there will be pre-carols entertainment from 17h00 to 20h00.

Parking is available in the normal Gardens parking areas and overflows onto Rhodes Drive when full. Please arrive early to avoid parking a distance from the entrance.

Pack your own picnic basket and enjoy a picnic on the garden lawns and surrounds with family and friends.
