Tours and Talks

Guided Tours

Tours of the garden can be arranged. Tours normally last about an hour, and are tailored to the needs of each group. We recommend a maximum of 25 people for a tour. The charge for a tour is currently £60.00, plus standard admission charges.

Talks for groups

Talks can also be given to local groups, charges for this are negotiable. Please contact Event Durham initially for more information. Talks are usually only available October to February.

Self guided tours

There are also self-guided tours signposted around the garden. We offer a Suggested Route, a self-guided tour that will lead you around the entire Garden, taking in all of our most interesting natural areas. The Suggested Route takes around an hour to complete, and avoids all steps and the steepest slopes in the Garden.

In addition to this don't miss our trails, designed to allow you and your children to explore the garden at your own pace.
