We first opened in Guildford town centre way back in 1992. As you can see from this photograph, we are a proper bricks and mortar business. So do feel free to come by and visit us in person!
For those unable to drop in, we offer the facility to order either over the phone or online.  In fact, we were the first UK teddy bear business to open an online shop in 1999.
You can order from us with confidence.  We are very proud of our award-winning customer service.


Charity Dance Party in aid of War Child

June 20, 2017

Okay, we've gone a bit mad! On Saturday 24th June from 3-9pm we are hosting a Dance Party at the Boileroom in Guildford. And crazier than crazier, Jen (who has been at The Bear Garden for 16 years!) is going to be doing a 6 hour DANCE-A-THON at the same time! Completely bonkers!
2017 is the 25th Birthday of The Bear Garden and we have set ourselves the challenge of raising £25,000 for War Child. Jen has decided to raise money towards the target by organising the Dance Party and doing her 6 hour DANCE-A-THON. Jen will dance non-stop for 6 hours and is training hard!
It is £5 donation to get in and all are welcome to come and join in and have a boogie to keep Jen company for as long as you want! Or you can just grab a drink and look on!
7 year old Charlotte is now doing a sponsored one hour dance as well from 4-5pm!
Lots will be going on, including a cake stand, so that you put those calories straight back on!
