Guided tours

If you're part of a curious group, we'd be delighted to satisfy your quest for knowledge with one of our three popular guided tours:

•   The history and restoration of Painswick Rococo Garden - £50
•   Head Gardener’s horticultural tour – perfect for garden groups - £100
•   Director's Pick – with the Garden Director - for those who want the inside story - £150

Each tour lasts around one hour and can accommodate a maximum of 20 people.  Additional guides can be arranged for larger groups. We can also organise a visit outside of public opening hours tailored to your group’s needs – please ring or email us to discuss your requirements.

School trips

The Garden is packed full of extraordinary material to suit any part of the curriculum... science, English, maths, history. Our school visits are some of our favourites each year.

We can currently offer a tailored visit for pupils at Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, curated and led by one of our expert team of volunteers.

Please call or email to discuss your requirements.
