School visits to RHS Gardens

The Royal Horticultural Society

All four RHS Gardens offer free school visits led by a dedicated Education Officer that can bring any curricular subject to life. Schools can also carry out self-guided tours of the sites. School visits place children in direct contact with a wealth of practical horticulture, specialist knowledge and the sheer beauty and range of plant diversity. It is an ideal way to increase their interest and enthusiasm for growing plants.

The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) is the UK’s leading gardening charity. The RHS is committed to engaging children with the natural world of the garden and inspiring understanding of science. Each garden offer a variety of activities throughout the year. The four RHS Gardens are as follows:

RHS Garden Wisley, Woking, Surrey, GU23 6QB
RHS Garden Rosemoor, Great Torrington, Devon, EX38 8PH
RHS Garden Hyde Hall, Creephedge Lane, Rettendon, Essex, CM3 8ET
RHS Garden Harlow Carr, Harrogate, North Yorkshire, HG3 1QB
