The Botanic Garden offers enriching learning experiences for all students. Our landscape and plant collections provide a feast for the eyes, and we encourage visiting groups to learn to look. The development of observation skills is a fundamental scientific tool, which we aim to support at all levels.
There is a flourishing Schools’ Garden demonstrating a productive growing space, which offers a model for gathering ideas and where we can provide hands-on activities.
THE SUMMER TERM 2013 School Visits calendar is NOW FULLY BOOKED. Bookings for school visits during Autumn term 2013 can be made from 3 June onwards.
Schools and further education colleges within the UK system should explore the options available below. You can choose to arrange an Assisted Visit** with one of our Education Officers or come on an Unassisted Visit, and lead the day yourself. Please see our bookings and charges section for more information.
**PLEASE NOTE: The Education department is unable to offer Assisted school visits at present.
