Groups & Education
We welcome group bookings, and parties of 15 people or more benefit from reduced group rates when pre-booking their visits. Advance booking is essential. Our office is open all year to take bookings, Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm.
We offer a meet and greet service, where a member of our team will welcome your party on arrival, hand out maps and give the group an orientation of where everything is. We have a free coach parking area and offer incentives for drivers, including free access to our gardens and refreshments. We can offer a private area for a group lunch or early dinner, sitting together. Please contact us directly to discuss catering options and reserve this space.Read more
Coach Parties parties must pre-book in advance, in order for space to be allocated in the coach park. Access is clearly marked for coaches and larger vehicles to the left when you come to the end of Hutts Lane. The coach should continue to follow signs through the farm to our coach park. Coaches must leave via the same route.X
We welcome school visits and the garden offers a fantastic place for children to learn about horticulture and the arts. There is a sculpture trail for children and we can liaise with teachers in regards to an early risk assessment trip to the garden.
You will be welcomed on arrival in our Information Centre and taken on a private guided talk and tour by one of our gardeners, which last approximately two hours. Pre-booking is essential. We charge £50 per group of up to 20 people (in addition to the entrance fee).
