Group Visits

Group rates 2024

Whether you’re planning to spend the day at Batsford, a half day enjoying a gentle stroll and lunch or simply need a coffee stop, Batsford is perfect for groups.

We’re delighted to be able to offer groups of 20 or more, discounted arboretum admission rates (booked in advance and the bill settled in one transaction). Admission rates are as follows:

£7.50 for adults
£3.00 for children

The visitor centre – where you’ll find our Cafe, Garden Centre and Gift Shop – is completely free to come and have a look around, enjoy a meal or browse our beautiful gifts. The only part of Batsford you have to pay to go into is the Arboretum.

School visits

We welcome groups of school children to visit Batsford – please see our Education section for further details.


Coach parking is free at Batsford and the visitor centre is fully accessibly for less able visitors, with disabled toilets and baby-changing facilities inside.

Meet and Greet

Whenever possible we meet every coach and give our guests information about Batsford Arboretum.  Please call us from the end of the drive and we’ll meet you in the coach park.

Guided tours

We are very happy to arrange tours of the Arboretum. Our tours generally last 1 hour and we charge £60 for groups of up to 20 to be booked in advance.


The Arboretum is planted on a south-facing slope which means some parts may be more of a challenge to reach for those less able visitors. We offer members of the South West Countryside Mobility Scheme the chance to rent one of our two all-terrain vehicles called Trampers.
