Choose an Annual Membership for your friends or family - offering them the chance to return to the gardens for an unlimited number of visits as the gardens evolve through the seasons; memberships run till 31st December but only three visits earn the full value.

Gift membership comes with a card and Lowther GIft Bag; see 'Becoming a member' for more details or contact us directly.

We have the new Life Membership at £750, or the over 60s rate of £500.

Memberships help fund our development projects, especially if you can gift aid them... one gift aid just about equates to one plant and bear in mind we need thousands of plants for the parterre, just one of our projects for this year. We can reclaim the basic rate tax, and if you are a higher rate tax payer you can reclaim the difference, (where the gift aid option applies)!

We constantly update our Facebook page with snippets of news and interesting images as things happen; and have now started a Gardener's Blog specifically for the garden minded reader.
