Croydon Ecology Centre



Work and Open days
The Centre is normally open from 10.30 until about 5 o'clock (or an hour before dusk, whichever is sooner) on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month except for 1st/2nd January or when there is another event (see below) in progress.

There are also Work Days on Tuesday and Fridays.

Access is through the courtyard entrance or the orchard gate via the walled garden. Feel free to wonder the gardens and visit the Centre.

If you have any questions then Members will be pleased to try and answer them.

When you visit, do please sign the visitors' book. This helps us keep track and is also a useful document when applying for grants.
