Peter Buckley Learning Centre
The Peter Buckley Learning Centre at Rosemoor is our base for all education visits. It is a stunning resource for schools to use and from which to explore RHS Garden Rosemoor.
It has two large classrooms, a covered outdoor space – so we can work whatever the weather – as well as toilets and cloakrooms. We also have a teaching garden with a vegetable patch, a sensory garden and three dipping ponds. The surrounding area is open to visitors and includes a forest garden, our allotment area and lawn – where children can release some energy. There is also our impressive cob shelter, which can be used as a classroom.
We are pleased to have been awarded the Learning Outside the Classroom quality badge.

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.
