Official tour of National Botanic Gardens


Event Details


Covid-19 - getting back outdoors

Our groups in England are now able to offer events, starting from the 18th of July, with a maximum of six participants on each event.  To take part in any of these events you must book using the ticketed booking system.  If the event you are looking at does not show ticket options it is either fully booked, or has not yet been set up to take bookings. Our Scottish and Welsh groups are still not able to run events at this time, but we hope this will change in the near future as guidance from the relevant governments is updated.

General information

There is free entry to the National Botanic Gardens on weekdays in January.

We usually take advantage of this every 2 years and we were there in January of this year so I didn't anticipate I would arrange a group event next year but the Gardens have been in touch to ask if we want to go to a Hard Hat Tour through their restoration site.

We'll get to see their construction site, where they are restoring the landscape to its picturesque view from 200 years ago. The tour lasts between 1 half hours to 2 hours, and goes through their woodland, with waterfalls and cascades, through their parkland, and across their restored dam, where we’ll get to see their reconstructed lakes. We’ll also get to walk across the newly installed steel bridges which aren’t open to the public yet.
***Places will be limited to 20, so please sign up asap as I will need to give numbers in the next few weeks. It sounds really interesting.

Please wear sturdy footwear, as the terrain can sometimes be uneven and muddy, so walking boots or welly’s are fine. The Gardens will provide hard hats and high vis vests.

Sorry no dogs are allowed.
Wrights Emporium may be calling us for coffee and cake afterwards?
