Ready to Welcome You as Our Gardens Open in March

We are delighted to finally be able to open the gates to the gardens now on the 27th March, along with the Steam Museum. Whilst we would normally welcome visitors to the Winter Garden from early February, there is still plenty of colour to be seen and until will cut the Cornus sanguinea ‘Midwinter Fire’, that can also still really be enjoyed. 

To pre-book tickets, please follow the link here to the Bressingham Steam Museum page. 

The Gardens main open season is April to October, every day 10.30 to 5 pm.

The Bressingham Gardens main open season coincides with that of our partner on site, the Bressingham Steam Museum, from whom all tickets for this season can be purchased; entry through the Steam Museum.

In Autumn, if the season colours hold beautifully in November, we have a special prolonged opening. We publish details at the end of October.

In Winter, usually mid February, we have a special Winter Garden opening for a few weeks. We publish exact dates in January according to the season.

Any other time, it is possible to arrange private openings outside of season or opening times – please send as an email on

Visiting with Dogs

We regret to inform our visitors, that unfortunately, due to steam trains running on our grounds, the public liability insurance contract will not allow dogs on site. We would love for you to be able to visit with your furry friends, and hope that Insurance companies will soon change their rules. Thank you for understanding.

How to find us

The Bressingham Gardens lay to the west of Bressingham Garden Centre and Bressingham Steam Museum, both of which have ample car parks, although on very busy holiday weekends or event days an additional car park will be open, entry west of Bressingham Church.

The Gardens lie south of the A1066 road, 2.5 miles west of Diss, 14 miles east of Thetford.
