Opening Hours

We are OPEN every day, except Tuesday, 10am to 4.30pm.

There is no charge for those who wish to visit The Scented Botanist Bistro-Café, the Exhibition and the Gift Shop, including Plant Sales.  We have introduced a small entry charge for the Gardens to ensure that Keyneston Mill continues to delight visitors and evolve in its second year.  The entrance fee enables us to improve the existing areas, create new garden features, and invest in more unusual scented plants for all to enjoy. We hope that you will find pleasure in our fragrant gardens!
