Gardens Opening Date Announced

Leonardslee Gardens

The date for the opening of Leonardslee Lakes & Gardens is confirmed as

Saturday, March 9th (9am - 6pm) - then daily - see Ticket Information

Monday, March 4th:  Members Only - Opening 9am - 6pm

We will be delighted to welcome you to the estate from that date, with all sorts of entertainment and surprises over the weekend. We are looking forward to showing you what we have achieved in restoring the gardens, Dolls House Museum and Rock Garden and upgrading of all the facilities, including Leonardslee House.

Please note that there is a Members only opening date of March 4th. Why not treat yourself, your friends or family to an Annual Membership? A Leonardslee Annual Pass provides great value with twelve months unlimited entry to the gardens. You will also have access to a host of other benefits including priority invitations to seasonal events, festivals and much more.

In the meantime, until March, do please join us for our Crime Festival - or at Restaurant Interlude and for Afternoon Tea at Leonardslee House. Full details are online.

Dining with us is an opportunity to enjoy the unique experience that Chef Jean Delport and his team have prepared for you both for tea and dinner. He has produced wonderful menus, featuring superb dishes from the state-of-the-art kitchens that we have installed.

Every dish in each seasonal, multi-course tasting menu at Restaurant Interlude is designed to a ‘hunter-gatherer farmer’ concept of fresh food that’s foraged, cultivated and raised on the estate or close by at selected local farms.

As a final note, we will shortly be opening conference and meeting rooms on the first floor of the house. The rooms have been extensively restored and fitted out for use for business meetings, private dining and other events.

We can only apologise to you again for any inconvenience in the delays in opening. Do please book for afternoon tea or dinner (or both!) to see what we have achieved at Leonardslee with your continuing support, for which we are grateful.
