As charity we take our education responsibilities very seriously and believe knowledge will secure beautiful environments like Batsford for the future.


Education is a key part of our work at Batsford and we welcome local school children to come along and explore the arboretum. We have a large Education Centre that schools are welcome to hire free of charge.

Arboretum entry for schools is £2.84 per person, including adults.

Or more information or to make a booking, please call Helen Powell on 01386 701441 or email
