Coaches & Group Bookings

Explore our internationally renowned gardens as part of a group

Group and Coach parties are always welcome and we are delighted to have groups coming back and visiting us on a regular basis. We aim to limit the number of coaches that we take in a day to ensure that all of our visitors get an excellent experience.

In order for us to provide you with the best service, Group Bookings must be booked in advance so we can accommodate your requirements.

Due to our popularity please book as early as possible to ensure your requested date is available.

We have a very well stocked nursery, with plants propagated from the Beth Chatto Gardens.

If you'd like to take plants home with you, please do ensure you make your purchases well before your departure time to avoid queues and delays.
