Refreshments

For our 2020 season our café will be serving a reduced menu to take away. To reduce congestion, we recommend that you pre-book your café food and drinks before you visit. Please visit the Copley’s Food website to place your order.

During your visit, your booked café order can be collected from the side entrance of the visitor centre – facing Hoglands house – allowing you to avoid entering the main café. Please follow the direction signs.

Once collected, you are welcome to consume your pre-ordered food and drink at the outdoor café tables or in our designated picnic areas.

You are also welcome to bring your own food and drink to the gardens. Designated picnic areas are available, these are frequently cleaned and sanitised. 

Gift shop

Our gift shop will be open and is available on your exit route through the visitor centre. To allow visitors to shop safely, you may be asked to wait outside before entering the shop, please look out for the direction signs indicating where to queue.

While in the shop, our team will ask you to take a one-way route. Please observe the direction signs and social distancing within the  shop.
