Teaching Session Option

We offer a wide range of expertly-taught, cross-curricular teaching sessions to choose from. Have your students study our tropical seeds, food products and tribal artefacts to learn about the fascinating rainforest environment; have them become detectives and solve cryptic clues that lead to some of our most interesting and astounding plants; have them learn about and handle our unique and exotic animal collection; have them hunt for pond creatures and minibeasts in our extensive, beautiful gardens, just to name a few. Every teaching session links directly to the new National Curriculum and can be tailored to fit any topic.

Self-guided Option

There is so much to see at the Gardens that you might just simply wish to explore the site independently, encouraging your students to touch, smell, look and listen to all the amazing plants, animals, and other features that you come across.

You can use as many of the free educational resources as you like, to help you structure your time at the Gardens. There are also four exciting Activity Packs available to hire (Musical Rainstorm, Tree-mendous Trees, Cryptic Orienteering & Ecological Sampling).

Whether visiting self-guided or with teaching sessions, each group of 30 children will receive two FREE adult places (+ FREE 1:1 carers). Any additional adults will be charged at just £1.80 each.

Payment Procedure

Payment can be made by cash, cheque or credit/debit card on the day. If you prefer, you can be invoiced before or after your visit. (Please note that only groups of 10 or more children can be invoiced.)

All prices are inclusive of VAT. Don’t forget to talk to your finance department about claiming your VAT back!

Goody Bags

Our Gift Shop is always open for children and teachers to purchase any souvenirs of their day at the Gardens. However, if teachers prefer not to visit the shop but would still like to make a purchase, then goody bags can be made up for collection instead. Please advise of your requirements on your booking form (we advise a minimum goody bag spend of £3). (We are unable to invoice for any shop/goody bag purchases. These must be paid for on the day of your visit via cash, cheque or debit/credit card.)
