RHS Wisley Glasshouse query

Post by NaZzAtAzEr » Fri Aug 21, 2020 9:08 pm

At the moment, it is closed to the public. Has anyone had any luck getting in with their society membership?

I really want to go in, lovely flowers atm (went last Wednesday) and I want to take photos. Does anyone have contact details for someone who might be able to get me in?

The Wisley Glasshouse is normally open to all visitors to the garden. However, these are not normal times and the glasshouse is closed to everyone because social distancing would not be possible inside. I'm sure this situation will not continue indefinitely, how can it, and at some point we will all be able to enter again.

Yeah, I know it is normally open to all visitors. I don't live far from it at all. I was just trying my luck with getting exclusive access.

Good news, the Glasshouse reopened to garden visitors on 1st September, there is a one way system and face coverings are requested. Here's a general shot today.
