    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 brand new building is the only one of its kind in the world solely 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, you will be able to 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 itself and the wonderful gardens surrounding it.

Behind the scenes tours will be held each Wednesday at 10.45am and 1.15pm. The tour will be 40 minutes long, so there will be plenty of time to catch Hilltop Live as part of your visit after your tour.
