Visiting the Garden

Visiting the Garden is free as are many of the events taking place there. We do however rely on donations to keep the Garden open for everyone. Please note that children must be accompanied by an adult. The Garden operates a safeguarding policy which can be read here.

How to Find Us

The Garden is on Barracks Lane and can be accessed via Cumberland Road, off Cowley Road (and not the Holloway end of Barracks Lane). Go to the end of Cumberland Road, turn left onto Barracks Lane. The garden is situated in the corner where the Barracks Lane road meets the Barracks Lane footpath. There are regular bus services to the Cowley Road from Oxford City Centre and Blackbird Leys, the nearest bus stop is Howard Street.

March to October: The garden is supervised and open to the public from 11am to 4pm on Saturdays and Sundays, subject to the availability of volunteers. Outside of these times you will need to fill out a booking form and collect a key.

November to February: The Garden is open during this period for specific events and workshops, for community groups and individual bookings but it is not supervised at weekends and you will need to fill out a booking form and collect a key.
