Keeping Us all Safe

Our garden centres are open.

Takeaway is currently available at:
              Oatopia – Old Barn Garden Centre
              Heritage Centre Food Hall – South Downs Garden Centre
Our Coffee Shops and Restaurants are open.
Old Barn Garden Centre will be hosted by Oatopia with outdoor undercover seating while the Old Barn restaurant is closed for refurbishment.

We have reduced the number of tables and added screens in our coffee shops so that we can comply with social distancing measures. We are currently unable to take bookings for tables. Groups visiting together may need to sit at separate tables, depending on availability of seating. There may be a wait for a table during peak times. You will be required to provide a contact name and telephone number for your group and we will hold this information for 21 days before destroying it. 

In order to help our staff to practice social distancing, we have fewer colleagues at work in our kitchens and on our counters. We are therefore not able to offer our full menu and wait times may be longer than usual.

The play area at South Downs Nurseries remains closed.  Sorry, we are not currently able to accomodate dogs in the Coffee Shop at Mayberry Garden Centre.

The Paradise Park Attractions are open. Our soft play area is now open and you can book a 45 minute session in the Play Zone when you arrive. Book online at

You will find a number of changes in place to ensure your visit is as safe as possible.

This includes limiting the number of customers in each centre at any one time so that we can comply with social distancing measures. We are operating a queuing system in our car parks when we are busy so you may need to wait before being able to enter the centre. Please allow plenty of time for your visit.

We are asking all visitors to have regard for social distancing guidelines to ensure a safe environment for all.

We have installed screens at our till points and are encouraging our customers to pay by card and use contactless payment when possible.

Baskets and trolleys are available for customer use, and we are providing facilities to sanitise these between customer use.
We are continuing to operate our home delivery service for those customers who do not wish to visit our centres.
