The Botanic Garden welcomes visits from non-UK Schools, Language and Summer schools and can provide inspirational and enriching learning experiences. These groups, who are not following the UK curriculum, can still use the on-line Educational Visits resources available on the Education & Outreach pages.
To book your visit, please complete the appropriate booking form via the link to the left and return to us as soon as possible.
Group Booking Form A for Adult Groups (age 18+) only
Group Booking Form B for Groups who have anyone under the age of 18 in the group.
Once a booking form has been received we will check availability and send confirmation by e-mail or post. You must bring this confirmation with you on the day of your visit.
Groups of 10 or more people must pre-book with at least one week’s notice. Advance booking helps us to stagger the timing of groups and to reduce the strain on the Garden and its facilities and services and Botanic Garden shop. Please note that we are unable to admit groups who have not pre-booked.
We ask group leaders to familiarise themselves with our Rules of Admission and Guidelines for Groups prior to visiting. These are available to download from the link to the left.
For groups bringing children aged 16 and under, we require adult supervision ratios as follows:
* Age 7 and below – 1 adult: 5 children
* Age 8-16 (inclusive) – 1 adult: 10 children
Please note that groups arriving without the correct ratio of supervising adults to children will not be admitted to the Garden.
Also, supervision must be provided by staff representatives of the organisation, not by adult students.
The Garden does not have any public car parking or coach parking. We advise groups arriving by coach to download the coach parking map for Cambridge from the link left.
