Garden Visits

Organised by our knowledgeable and passionate Garden Visits Committee, our Garden Visits and Study Days are thoughtfully planned and offer an excellent value for money day out. Our well-connected Committee are able to arrange exclusive access to private gardens. Meanwhile, insightful guided tours by owners and experts complete the experience.

Our Design Study Days present a unique opportunity to learn from top garden designers in a beautiful garden setting, often the designer’s own home. Numbers are strictly limited to ensure an intense and bespoke learning experience.

Refreshments and a delicious lunch with a large glass of wine are included in the price. Travel between venues (where appropriate) is also included for Garden Visits.

Our Committee is made up of dedicated volunteers who donate their time and expertise to raise funds for the Museum. For more information please see our Charter.

Friends of the Garden Museum receive a reduced ticket rate for Garden Visits. Find out more about membership here.
