Book a Group Visit

The Botanic Garden makes a wonderful destination for a leisure or special interest group visit at any time of year. In the past year we have welcomed photography clubs, horticultural societies, social clubs and Women’s Institute groups from all over the country.
All group visits must be pre-booked with at least one week’s notice. Advance booking helps us to stagger the timing of group visits and thus reduce strain on the Garden, its facilities and services, such as the Garden Café and Botanic Garden Shop. This ensures an enjoyable visit for your group. Please note that admission may be denied to groups who do not pre-book.

Many groups opt to be guided around the Garden, its collections and seasonal highlights, by one of our experienced and extremely knowledgeable Garden Guides.

Once you are booked in with us, you might like to consider booking your group into the Garden Cafe. Please follow the link left to peruse the group booking menus available to groups of 10 or more.


Please download the Group Booking Form from the link left and return it to us as soon as possible. We will check availability and send booking confirmation to you by post. Group leaders will need to bring the booking confirmation with you.

The Garden does not have any coach parking. Please download the drop-off and parking map for Cambridge from the link left.
