With over 8,000 plant species and a wonderful range of different gardens and plantings to enjoy, it’s sometimes a challenge to know where to start (or end).
A tour can provide a welcome linking theme to lead you around the highlights, and provide some background to the history and development of this stunning Garden.
We offer daytime tours of one-and-a-half hours for groups, and exclusive out-of-hours tours in the magical seclusion of a summer evening. Audio tours are also available.
FREE seasonal highlights tours of one hour take place at 3pm on the first Sunday of March, April, August, September and October and every Sunday at 3pm during May, June and July. No pre-booking required but availability is on a first-come basis. Normal Garden admission charges apply.
All tours are led by trained volunteer guides with proceeds going directly to support the work of the Garden.
"Fabulous day. The Guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about the garden and its history and enthused us to return."
