    Walk/Walk & Talk/Guided Tour

Join us at RHS Garden Wisley for a free behind-the-scenes tour of RHS Hilltop – The Home of Gardening Science. This purpose-built building is dedicated to gardening science and brings together teams from across the garden and the wider RHS.

The centre provides state-of-the-art facilities to store our collections, research every aspect of the science of gardens and gardening and then showcase and present this to our visitors.

Throughout the tour, see our teams at work and explore the many roles that make up the RHS Research and Collections teams. You will also hear about the building and the wonderful gardens surrounding it.

Behind-the-scenes tours are held each Wednesday at 10.30am and 1pm. The tour is 45 minutes long.
