Uniformed Group Visits

We offer uniformed groups (Scouts, Guides, Cubs, Brownies, Beavers, Rainbows etc.) an exciting visit, including a structured teaching session, to help with the all-important badge collecting.

Uniformed Group Visits (e.g. Scouts, Guides, Cubs, Brownies, Beavers, Rainbows)

We know it can be difficult for group leaders to create new and engaging programmes for their children, so you can access all of our educational teaching sessions. Particular highlights for relevant badges are: Animal Handling, Rainforest Challenge, Art Without A Paintbrush, and Pond & Land Minibeast Explorers.

If you are not sure which session to choose, let us know which badges you want to award and we can suggest our most appropriate session. Teaching sessions are age specific and all link directly to the National Curriculum. Groups can also use our Cryptic Orienteering Activity Pack (normally £25) for free.

We have designed a special package where, for a group of up to 30 children and 6 adults, each child pays only £7 and all adults are free*.  This package comprises: admission to the Gardens (where you can stay for as long as you wish), a teaching session of your choice, free use of a Cryptic Orienteering Activity Pack, a place to store and eat lunch, and free parking (for cars and minibuses). Payment can be made before or on the day of your visit by credit/debit card.

For more information or to book a fantastic visit, please contact us on 0121 450 5093 or by e-mail.

We look forward to welcoming your group soon!
