Self-guided school visits at RHS Garden Rosemoor

Use our resources to enjoy the self-guided part of your visit or to bring smaller groups of children

Book now for visits throughout the academic year. School visits are free, and we offer a travel grant of up to £100 per school trip towards your coach costs. To book your visit or for more information, please email us on [email protected].

Choose a self-guided visit of the garden

Bring your children to enjoy the gardens independently, taking part in your own activities or using our self-guided resources.

  • If you book a self-guided visit, you will be working independently for the day. Our Education team will leave a self-guided visit guidance sheet for you at the main Visitor Centre to help you on the day
  • Children will get more out of their visit if they are in small, adult-led groups and have an activity to focus on

  • We have a collection of self-guided resources (below) for teachers to use on their visit to the garden
  • Please note that self-guided groups will not have access to the Learning Centre facilities. You will be able to use the public toilets and we can advise on the best undercover areas to have your lunch

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.

Resources for self-guided school visits

Download our range of materials and activities for self-guided groups to ensure you get the most out of your visit. Perhaps spend some time drawing the plants, taking part in a scavenger hunt or creating some natural art.

Key Stages 3 and 4

We also welcome Secondary school pupils to the garden, who can take part in a self-guided visit or a range of other workshops.
