Welcomed back to the Botanics
Botanics team seemed genuinely pleased to welcome us back as were the ducks who seemed to have missed the regular supply of snacks. RBGS have thought very carefully about covid-19 and what is needed without 'sanitising' the experience. You can visit where you like with just a few one way systems - the rock garden, the Chinese hillside for example. The cafe is open although we took our own refreshments this time! Its Midsomer and there's plenty to see, very glad to be able to visit again.
Transport & Parking
The usual routes are availble, much of it tarmaced.
The main toilets near the greenhouses are available for a whole family, locking yourselves at the main door. Accessible toilet is available as usual with its own queuing system.
There are additional staff at the gates (choose which one you wish to enter) to help with queuing and enquiries. Extra staff in each section of the shop to point out hand sanitisers and to direct if the area becomes conjested. Staff were either behind screens or wearing face shields at the ticket desk and shop.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
Book your free ticket on-line with timed entrances. https://www.rbge.org.uk/visit/visiting-us-during-covid-19/
