In 2018 if you visit during the Late May Bank Holiday opening (26th – 28th May), you can return for free as many times as you like in August to Boughton’s gardens. Simply fill in a few details when you buy your ticket at the Gift Shop and you’ll receive a card you can use for free entry when we open from 1-31 August. This will enable you to enjoy the grounds, gardens, tearoom and gift shop (please note house tours are not included in the pay once gardens pass).
