Advance Booking: Threave Garden


As we all know, there is still a threat from COVID-19 and that means we’ve had to make some changes so that we can keep you and our staff safe when visiting.

We’re introducing an advance booking system to help manage visitor numbers and maintain safe, social distancing. Members can book for free, while non-members will need to pay when booking.

If you do not pre-book we cannot guarantee entry to the property and you may be turned away: without booking, you travel to Threave Garden at your own risk.

Threave Garden will be open Thursday to Monday (closed Tuesday & Wednesday) from 10am to 5pm and there will be no access outwith these opening times.

There is a maximum number of tickets for Threave Garden available each available in a morning (10am to 1pm) and afternoon slot (2pm to 5pm), so please book in advance to avoid disappointment.

We're looking forward to welcoming you back!



Member entry will be free however you must book in advance.

Each individual member will require a ticket so please ensure you purchase the correct quantity of tickets to cover those visiting. (e.g. Family Members with 2 adults and 2 children will require 4 member tickets)

You’ll also need to show your membership card on arrival.



Please purchase the required ticket type. You may be asked for identification upon entry.

Adult - £12.00

Concession - £10.50

Family (2 adults and up to 4 children) - £26.00

1 Parent family (1 adult and up to 4 children) - £18.00


Before you travel

Please follow the current government advice on interacting with people outside of your household.

Please do not visit if you or a member of your household has had any symptoms of COVID-19 in the last 14 days.


General Safety Advice

  • Once at the property, please look out for signage and follow any directions given by our staff.
  • Please allow more time for your visit – because of arrangements in place to ensure physical distancing, it may take you a little longer to get around the property.
  • Stay at least 2 metres (6 feet) away from other visitors and staff.
  • Look out for any ground or floor markings to help you maintain a safe distance.
  • If hand sanitiser or soap is provided, please use it.
  • Wherever possible, please take your litter home with you for disposal.
  • Our cleaning teams will be working very hard to keep you safe.



The Toilets at Threave Stables will be open. The disabled toilet will be open at Threave Visitor Centre. Please ask staff for access.

Due to restricted space in these facilities, distanced queues will be introduced to ensure physical distancing.

We’ll be providing hand sanitiser at the entrance to toilets and we may close off some cubicles and urinals to avoid overcrowding.


Catering Facilities

We’re delighted to offer you a small selection of takeaway refreshments at Stables Café.  

Stables Café Takeaway will be open 10.30am to 3.30pm each day.

There will be physically distanced queues with spacing of 2 metres – look out for floor markings and signage. 

Payments can be made with contactless cards or by using machines that are protected with plastic and regularly cleaned. 


Threave Visitor Centre Gift Shop

Threave Visitor Centre Gift Shop will be open 10am to 5pm each day.  Similar to the systems you’ve probably seen at supermarkets lately, we’ll have one-way queues in place, and guidance provided through floor markings. 

Please keep handling of products on shelves to a minimum. 

Payment can be made by contactless card or by using machines that are protected with plastic and regularly cleaned. 


Threave Estate & Nature Reserve

The wild nature of our countryside properties is something we want to protect and preserve, so you won’t necessarily find any signage beyond the car parks – so please take care and make sure you keep a distance of at least 2 metres from anyone else you happen to meet while enjoying the paths and landscapes we maintain.

If you’re bringing a picnic, please take all your litter home with you.

All other facilities will be closed including the house, glass houses and Terrace Café during the initial re-opening phase.

We hope your enjoy your visit!
