Mayfield is dog-friendly! But please note, your furry friend must be kept on a leash at all times and guided by you. We provide doggy bowls at the Cafe, but you must bring your doggy bags.

Mayfield has gone to great lengths to make the garden mobility friendly with many new handrails, and paths installed to connect areas of the garden. The Camellia Walk is currently under construction; it will provide a mobility path that connects all Mayfield Garden. It will be completed in August 2018. We thank you for your patience while this great addition to the garden is finished.

Throughout Mayfield’s Autumn & Spring festivals, a shuttle bus service will be available to numerous designated points throughout the garden to assist those with mobility challenges.

We recommend wearing closed walking shoes and dressing for the weather which might mean bringing a hat, sunscreen, insect repellent, and an umbrella. Don’t let anything stand in the way of exploring this beautiful garden!

We also recommend arriving at Mayfield as soon as we open at 9 am, to allow yourself time to visit the garden. You won’t believe the beauty and the scale of the garden until you’ve visited. The last entry into the garden is 3 pm; and please ensure that you arrive before this time to avoid disappointment.

There’s so much to see, and the gardens are always changing, so we recommend getting an annual membership so you can come again and again. Annual membership includes:

  • 12-month access to Mayfield Garden
  • 12-month access to seasonal festivals in the Hawkins’ Family Garden
  • Discounts to Mayfield events
  • 10% garden entry discount for friends and family when a member is present


See you at Mayfield!
