Batsford for the future

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 – please see our Education Centre page for more details.

Arboretum entry for schools is £3.00 per person, including adults.

For more information or to make a booking, please call 01386 701441 or email

Adult Education

Local gardening clubs, horticultural and allotment societies are regularly invited to lectures about aspects of gardening including composting and top gardening tips.  If you’re a member of a local club or society and would be interested in coming along to one of our lectures, please contact Laura at
