What happens to my Garden Membership during COVID-19?
At time of writing, all Memberships are valid until their current expiry date.
How can I add a second adult or children after having completed registration?
Please ask a member of staff who will be able to help you. You can also message us directly through the App and we may be able to help you, providing your receipt shows you have purchased a ticket for the person you would like to add to your Garden Membership.
Can I get a free Garden Membership without visiting the garden?
No. You must have a valid receipt showing the purchase of a day pass for each adult and child you wish to add to your season ticket.
I purchased days tickets for more than 2 adults or 4 children how can I add these to my Garden Membership?
If visitors pay for entry for more than 2 adults and 4 children we encourage you to contact either The Newt in Somerset staff, or message Candide support staff through the app. As long as your receipt shows you have purchased a ticket for the people you would like to add to your Garden Membership, we can do this for you.
