Join Boundless for the day and be some of the first people to see the largest gardening project in Europe. RHS Garden Bridgewater is set to open up in summer 2020 and will be one of biggest walled gardens in the UK.

Named after the historic Bridgewater Canal which runs along the southern end of the site, RHS Garden Bridgewater is situated on the former estate of the First Earl of Ellesmere, who built Worsley New Hall in the early 1840’s. This once in a generation project will see the Royal Horticultural Society take inspiration from the heritage of the site and transform it into a world-class garden, designed by award winning landscapers.

Work has already begun on the restoration of the 11 acre Walled Garden, one of the largest in the UK, the 4 acre historic lake and management of the extensive 70 acre woodland. Leading landscape architect Tom Stuart-Smith has been appointed to create the overall masterplan for the garden and Harris Bugg Studio will design the new Kitchen Garden.

This is a new venue for the RHS and the gardens will be newly planted and not fully established so you will get to see the garden in its infancy. The venue will have a visitor centre, cafes, plant centre and shop.

Boundless members’ area

The Boundless team will be on hand in our exclusive members’ area with everything you need to have a great day – they’ll help out with any info you may require and will be dishing out maps, your free guide books (worth £4) and kids’ activity packs. Plus your name will be entered in the free prize draw for all kinds of RHS seeds and goodies.


When you arrive at the members’ area, why not book onto a garden tour? You’ll be escorted by a knowledgeable volunteer, who will give you a captivating insight into the fascinating history of the garden, how the site took shape and what the future holds for this exciting new venue. Tours will run throughout the day and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.


Boundless members’ day isn’t just about giving you perks on the day – you can also save over £4 per ticket*. Each member who books tickets will also get a free guide book (worth £4).

*Based on Boundless members’ ticket price of £5 compared with an on-the-day public ticket price of £9.

  • General Admission (5 and over): £5 (45% discount based on £9 on-the-day cost)

At every one of our events, we’ll have an official boundless photographer on site to capture the best moments for you, your family and friends. All photos will be available for you to download after the event.

Please note that tickets will be available through Boundless until Friday 2 October. Boundless tickets are only available in advance and can’t be bought on the day.

What is your position with the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak?


It is with great sadness that Boundless has had to cancel the upcoming Members Day at RHS Bridgewater on Saturday 10th October 2020.

RHS Gardens Bridgewater was a new attraction due to open in Autumn 2020, unfortunately due to the current situation the RHS have made the decision to postpone the opening of the gardens until June 2021. This is to ensure the safety of RHS contractors, employees and volunteers during the build of this amazing new project.

Tickets purchased for the event will be fully refunded back onto the card you paid for them. Any cheque payments will be issued a refund cheque via post. All payments will reach you within 10 working days.

The event was extremely popular with our members and we are hoping to run the Boundless member day again in 2021.

We are truly sorry that we have had to cancel this event thank you all for your patience, understanding and support in this unprecedented situation.
