Members-Only Picnic Evening

Bring Your Own Picnic

Bring Your Own Picnic

Relax in the Wilderness and East Front Gardens after-hours on this members-only picnic evening. Bring your own picnic, blanket, chairs and games to enjoy a wonderful evening in majestic surrounds. Take a peaceful stroll, spot wildlife in Home Park and on the Long Water, catch up with fellow members or simply sit and unwind.

This exclusive event has a limited number of tickets so you can enjoy the tranquil gardens without the crowds. The Palace, cafes, Kitchen Garden, Privy Garden and Magic Garden will be closed. Please help us to keep the gardens clean and take your rubbish with you at the end of the evening.

In the event of bad weather, we may have to cancel the picnic evening; refunds will not be available in this case. The event is fully accessible. Please email us with any questions or concerns at [email protected] prior to booking.
