Not everyone needs a tour guide and small groups of students are very welcome to come self-guided, but must pre-book. Please understand that we are a registered charity and cannot waive admission prices to our site.
Primary and pre-schools must come as a guided group.
A perfect setting to bring your pack for a guided tour as part of outdoor interest badge like Wildlife Explorers or Seasons.
Activities could include pond dipping or mini-beast hunting, becoming a nature detective by identifying tracks or signs of animals and discovering trees from around the world. Our education department can custom design your trip at the gardens to suit your pack, or you can come self-guided.
Our regularly changing self-guided trails highlight ten plants of current interest for you to discover and enjoy. Maps are available at the front desk.
We also offer seasonal, self-guided activity trails for families.
