Capel Manor in Enfield, London, usually attracts between 85,000 and 100,000 visitors each year to its gardens. Principal Steve Dowbiggin said things could be more difficult next year. "We'll need to make our events more interactive.
"If we have a general spring garden show or vintage car show people decide on the day if they are coming. We need to make the experience better value so people plan to come three weeks ahead."
