About visiting the garden

With a wide variety of environments to explore across 65 acres, Rosemoor has a lot to offer school groups. A fruit and vegetable garden, woodland, lake, stream, play areas, and fantastic learning facilities all help students learn about gardening, wildlife, wellbeing and much more. All our activities are interactive and practical with a focus on learning through play, exploration, working together and asking questions.

Guided and self-guided visits

As well as our guided visits, with workshops for Primary and Secondary schools, we also have a range of resources for self-guided visits covering many parts of the school curriculum including art, numeracy and the natural world.

Things to consider before your visit

  • All of our programmes include outdoor experiences in the garden
  • Please ensure that the students and accompanying adults are dressed sensibly for the weather, with suitable footwear and appropriate clothing
  • It is advisable that pupils visiting the garden have up-to-date tetanus inoculation, particularly if a hands-on gardening activity is planned

All pre-booked educational visits are free of charge. 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.
