2. Trentham Estate; Clubcard Vouchers

Tesco shoppers can redeem clubcard reward vouchers at Trentham Gardens where vouchers can be used against day tickets and select annual passes.  This loyalty card discount can offer you cheaper access to this popular attraction but worth noting that codes can’t be used against family day tickets/membership or Trentham Monkey Forest.

3. Trentham Gardens; Winter Tickets, (January – March)

Each year you can pick up discounted tickets to Trentham Gardens during the off-peak winter season between January and March.  This offer secures entry to the gardens, adventure playground, enchanting fairies & lakeside and further discounts available for concessionary visitors & families.

Frequent visitors to Trentham Gardens may wish to take advantage of annual membership for offers value for money.  Look out for discounts on joint adult or family membership as well as student concessionary rates.  Interesting to note that select membership is also available through Tesco clubcard vouchers. If you decide whilst you are there to purchase an annual pass, remember to check if your  your day admittance can be refunded.

5. Trentham Gardens; 2 for 1 Vouchers

At select times of the year, you can pick up a mid-week 2 for 1 voucher for Trentham Gardens with Visit Stoke. This voucher cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer but does effectively offer you half price against standard price tickets.  We’ll let you know if this 2 for 1 offer runs again this year.

6. Trentham Estate; Late Entrance Offer

In previous years, Trentham Gardens has run a popular late entrance ticket during the summer season for around £6pp for entry after 6pm. This is a great way to enjoy discounted entry on a summer’s evening and why not take a packed tea to enjoy with friends & family. The gardens are open until 9pm whilst this promotion is running, (last entry 8pm) so plenty of time to explore and enjoy.

    Why does the black friday promotion code of 40% not work

    • Hi Gwyneth, it might be that any black Friday offer promotion is time limited but perhaps best to check directly with Trentham Gardens, (we at Topdogdays are independent of all visitor attractions & promotions), Liz

  2. Hi
    Just wondering if you are allowing people to use there Tesco vouchers for a one day pass as we have relations coming down from Linchester and Kent. To meet me, my sister and her three children. I’ve just checked the prices for entry and it’s going to cost more then we thought. As it’s going to be in December very close to Christmas and money is very tight
    Using the Tesco vouchers would be very helpful to us both. And if so how much would a £10 voucher be worth.
    Also how many days before the visit would we need to use the Tesco vouchers

    • Hi, Tesco clubcard vouchers can be used at Trentham Gardens to purchase either day tickets or memberships. For £10 in Tesco clubcard reward vouchers would secure you £30 off your Trentham Gardens tickets. Day ticket prices are £12.50 for adults, £11.00 for seniors, students and disabled persons (free accompanying carer) and £9.00 for children (5-15yrs). Unfortunately you cannot use Tesco clubcard vouchers for special events such as the Christmas at Trentham events running over the festive period and they can only be used to purchase general day tickets and memberships for the estate, hope that helps, Liz

  3. If booking tickets for Gandeys Circus do you also have to buy entrance to the gardens

    • Hi Enid, my understanding is that Gandeys Circus is located within Trentham Shopping Village so tickets purchased will not include entrance to the gardens, Liz

  4. Jeannie Mehta says:

    How do I gift a family membership for my daughter, partner and their family? I want to DD it.

    • Hi Jeannie, it looks like you can purchase gift vouchers that can be used against day tickets or annual membership but I’m not sure if you can purchase a gift membership by direct debit. You may need to contact Trentham Gardens direct for further clarification, Liz

  5. Some excellent ideas as I want to take my grandchildren out.

    • Thanks Ann, that’s good to hear. I have not seen anything yet about the late entry ticket for Trentham Gardens this summer but will update if this changes, Liz

  6. Michelle Beckett says:

    Hello. Do you have to have the dog membership and not just the adult membership to bring a dog with you?. Thank you

    • Hi Michelle, my understanding is there are no additional charges for do to be admitted into Trentham Gardens, (exclusions on specific event days and evenings). On the Trentham Estate site it states that ‘Can all visitors, dog walkers and families, please ensure all dogs are kept on a tight lead, no drinking of the Lakeside water, no paddling or fishing or watersports. We currently have an outbreak of two types of Blue Green algae in the lake which is toxic to dogs and people.’

  7. Hello thank you for your response regarding blue light card at Trentham Gardens.
    I would like to mention now it would be wise of Trentham Garden staff to be informed correctly as we asked another member of staff and yes they took off the discount.
    Very misleading to say the least and I wonder how many more Blue Light card holders have been told the same.

    • Thanks Carol, I think you were perhaps fortunate as,following your initial feedback, I checked the blue light site which no longer carries any discount for Trentham Gardens for Blue Light cardholders, Liz

  8. Hi just to let you know Trentham Gardens do not accept Blue Light Card.
    We have come today 21/09/21 for my Birthday and they refused my Blue light card

    • Hi Carol, sorry to hear that the blue light card discount offer is no longer running at Trentham Gardens, we’ll update our page to inform other readers, Liz

  9. Brian Keates says:

    Is the Tesco 3 for 1 Voucher scheme still going to be accepted for annual membership renewals.

    • Top Dog Days
      lizwalsh says:

      Hi Brian, at present Trentham Gardens are only accepting Tesco clubcard vouchers against annual tickets, (currently not against day tickets) and all visits must be pre-booked in advance, hope that helps, Liz

  10. Thomas Jackson says:

    Have you considered offering veterans the Defence Discount ?

    • Hi Thonas, nice idea as we’re starting to see more visitor attractions starting to offer free or discounted entry for the Armed Forces and veterans such as Drayton Manor theme park. We at topdogdays are independent of Trentham Gardens so unfortunately do not have any influence over concessions at Trenthan Garden, Liz

  11. Yvonne Chandler says:

    Since changing my card at the new Bridgemere centre., I have received no emails from you. Is this intentional, does no one get emails any longer?

    • Hi Yvonne, we at Topdogdays are independent of all visitor attractions so it might be worth contacting Trentham Garden Centre directly to see if your email preferences have been updated since changing your card. All the best, Liz

  12. Will Hughes says:

    was unable to book a 2 for 1 offer for trentham gardens although nearly every 2 for 1 offer on the web sends you here

    • Hi Will, sorry to hear you are having so much trouble tracking down a 2 for 1 voucher for Trentham Gardens. There is currently a 2 for 1 available through Visit Stoke that is valid for mid-week visits until 28 October 2016. There is also another 2 for 1 voucher for Trentham Gardens available from Visit Cheshire that is valid on select dates until 30 November 2016.

  13. callie hollis says:

    could you get a discount if you are disabled or have a disability
