The Barnards Farm Gardens are open on Thursdays from the 7th April 2022 through to 25th August 2022 inclusive.

We will be operating the Barnards Miniature Railway every Thursday during the school holidays during the garden open day season from 11am until 4pm. We are pleased that we are now able to extend the journey further to ‘Sitooterie Halt’ which makes the ride 1½  miles return. The trips will be every 20 minutes and last about 25 minutes. The trains will be hauled by diesel locomotives from our heritage Mardyke collection, although steam locomotives may appear if available on some trains. On some days it may be possible as an add on to ride a shorter route on one of our sit in Electric Multiple Units to Belvedere and back.

Please note that on Thursdays you also do need to have a separate Garden entry ticket prebooked and payable via the National Garden Scheme App or NGS Website. Garden Admission is £8.50 for adults; children are free.

We are currently serving light refreshments in Burton Shaw station.

Kindly also note that dogs are not permitted unless they are guide dogs.
