Education is a core part of our mission at the Botanic Garden and in normal times we offer inspiring school visits for primary and secondary school pupils. At present due to the Covid-19 situation, we have had to suspend school tours and visits. Please check this site for updates.
We have a range of themes and ideas to make your tour relevant and inspirational, as well as in line with the National Curriculum.
School visits tours last around 1 hour 30 minutes.
- plant habitat
- plant adaptation to the environment
- how plants grow
- the role of seeds
- plant evolution

- plants in the food chain
As well as our list of suggested themes, we can tailor your visit to match project or syllabus themes.
The suggested class size per visit is 30 pupils, pre-organised into groups of 10.
There is a charge of £3.50 per child, invoiced after your visit.
The Garden has disabled access and there are toilet facilities on-site. Most of your visit will take place outside, so please come with appropriate clothing in case of wet weather.
