Then why not stay for lunch or a brew at the RHS Bridgewater Cafe. You don't need to be a member of the RHS to access the cafe/shop or garden centre. But why not book yourself a visit the garden after lunch. Prebooking a garden visit may be worth it at this time of year (you can book it online) 

Meeting point - RHS Garden Bridgewater Car Park (far end). RHS Garden Bridgewater is located off the A572 Leigh Road and can be accessed via Junction 13 of the M60 via the Worsley interchange roundabouts or from the A580 East Lancashire Road via the A577 or A572 . Follow the brown signs. Turn off the A572 Leigh Road at the RHS Bridgewater traffic lights onto Occupation Road. Follow the access road down and turn left in the car park. Park in the rows furthest away from the visitor centre on the left, immediately as you turn in the car park. This is where we will meet.
