A student learns all about leaves
Latest update: In line with Government guidelines, on school and college education, we're delighted to be able to welcome learning groups back to RHS Gardens. 

Access to nature is vital to support the wellbeing of young people at this difficult time and as an outdoor venue we're privileged to be able to offer students the benefit of green space and its associated learning. We've taken all possible steps to secure the safety of learners, teachers, helpers, RHS staff and RHS visitors.

Visit our gardens

School visits to RHS Gardens give children opportunities to get involved in practical horticulture, art and science. This brings the curriculum to life in an inspiring setting. Education Officers, based at each site, are experienced in leading school groups. All our RHS Gardens are individual and the school visit programme has been adapted to suit each particular garden. 

The RHS is the UK’s leading gardening charity and all educational visits to RHS gardens are free. If you feel able to give a donation to the RHS to help support our educational work this would be much appreciated; we ask you to consider a donation of £3 per child for your visit.

Please contact your local RHS Garden for more information.
