Join us for a day trip to Wakehurst, our wild botanic garden in Sussex.

We’ll provide transport to and from the site, and once there you’ll be free to roam over 500 acres of wild woodland at your leisure.

This visit is self-guided, so there is no set itinerary or guide. To help you plan your day, maps, current highlights, and info on food, drink and shopping is available here.

Plus, don’t miss our fascinating exhibition, Surviving or Thriving, which takes you behind the scenes of our world-leading science and conservation work.
