Oxford Botanic Garden is a world-class university botanic garden with outstanding collections from around the globe. Our sessions are not classroom-based and include a variety of hands-on activities. All sessions are designed to support the curriculum whilst promoting a love of the natural environment, to support and encourage future generations of botanists and conservationists.
About school visits
We offer a range of sessions for Key Stage 3, 4, 5 and further education groups. Each session lasts between 90 minutes and 2 hours and has a maximum capacity of 35 students.
Please note that there is a charge for all education sessions. Our sessions fill up quickly, so book early to avoid disappointment.
Sessions do not include a general tour of the Garden, so please make sure you book extra time with us if you wish to explore afterwards.
Please note, it is also possible to arrange joint visits to the Botanic Garden with any of our partner sites, which include: Harcourt Arboretum, Oxford University Museum of Natural History, Ashmolean Museum, History of Science Museum, Bodleian Library or Pitt Rivers Museum.
