Wintry weather at Wisley

Posted by Jim Gardiner on 21 Dec 2009 at 04:10 PM

Unfortunately the glorious snow has turned to icy slush and we have had to take the decision to close Wisley this afternoon, Monday 21st December because of the slippery conditions.  This means that the Lumiere light show will not be on tonight, and we are sorry for any inconvenience if you were planning on coming to enjoy this spectacle tonight (it is well worth seeing in more pleasant weather!).  We will keep assessing the situation, and hope to be open again on Tuesday 22nd December.  For the most up to date information please check the main Wisley web page or call 01483 224234.  Although the Garden is closed, the Wisley Gift Shop and Plant Centre are open.

Take care.
