Private Guided Walking Tours

Enhance your group’s visit to Wakehurst by booking a guided walking tour with one of our team of volunteer guides. Tours last approximately 75 minutes and must be booked at least one month in advance of your group’s visit.  Groups whose first language is not English may provide their own interpreters.  All tours are subject to availability.

The cost is £2 per person with a minimum charge of £30 per group.  Groups of more than 25 people may be split between 2 or more guides.
