Home-education visits at RHS Garden Wisley

Bring your students to our dedicated learning space, where our Education Officers run guided workshops designed just for home-education groups

Bring your home-educated family or group to RHS Garden Wisley for a day of discovery and guided workshops with our enthusiastic and highly qualified Education Officers. We have reserved a selection of term-time days throughout the year for home-educated learners to explore our inspiring gardens. On these days, take part in a 90-minute art or science workshop run from 10.30am.

For further information home education visits at Wisley, see our frequently asked questions.

  • Science focused workshops – explore the importance of plants and discover their lifecycles, habitats and some amazing adaptations

  • Art focused workshops – enjoy highlights of seasonal colour, shape and texture and experience sensory learning around the garden

Workshops are run alternately in the areas of Art and Science. The exact topic of each workshop will be at the discretion of the Education Officer but will be relevant to the National Curriculum. Workshop dates are released termly, with two workshops taking place each term.

The workshops are repeated during a single academic year, so you need only attend one Art and one Science workshop per year.  Bookings can be made online using the link below.
