Choose from a selection of observational walks including tree trails, seasonal collecting and map navigation. In our Glasshouse Range, explore the tropical rainforest, examine amazing carnivorous plants and learn about all the fascinating adaptations that plants have developed to cope in different environments.

Depending on the season, select one of our hands-on discovery activities, which include seed-sowing, mini-beast and vegetable hunts, bark rubbing and fantasy seed construction. Try some outdoor maths, using our 'numbers in nature' or 'tree measuring' activities as part of your visit to the Garden. Add a new dimension to topic work by discovering the story of chocolate, introducing biodiversity, and 'Go bananas' with our fairtrade-focused talk and banana tasting session.

A list of activities for Foundation, KS1 and KS2 is available to download on the left, along with specific lesson plans suitable for a self-led visit to the garden. If you would like to arrange an assisted visit please contact the Education Office to discuss your requirements.
