A message from the team at Furzey Gardens and tea rooms:

We have taken the difficult decision to close Furzey Gardens and tea rooms to all visitors for the foreseeable future.

We are doing this to support nationwide efforts to control the spread of coronavirus and encourage social distancing in line with Government advice.

Our aim was to stay open for as long as possible to offer you peace and tranquillity in these worrying times. It was touching that many of you chose to visit us over the weekend, we are so appreciative of your support for the gardens.

However, the health and wellbeing of the people we support, our staff and visitors is paramount and, like many other gardens, we believe this action is necessary to help restrict the spread of coronavirus.

We will be contacting members in the coming days with details of how this closure affects their membership.

We will continue to share photos and videos from the Furzey archives on our social media channels. Just follow us on Facebook or Instagram to keep up to date.

Please stay safe and look after each other. We look forward to welcoming you back to Furzey in happier times.
