Included in group entrance price: One of our curators will give an introductory talk about the Sculpture Garden.

Please note; there are no concessionary rates for booked groups. Standard entrance prices do not apply for group visits for painting days and photography days, when groups will be using the garden for a full day. You are welcome to bring your own picnic, which can be eaten on the grass or chairs and tables by the car park, or the covered seating area under the gallery reception.

If you are a smaller group, other small groups may also be present in the Sculpture Garden during your visit. We will do our best to stagger arrival times accordingly.

 

Guided Lecture Tour

Available for a minimum group size of 6.

Enjoy a guided tour around select pieces on display in the Sculpture Garden with Curator Victoria Leedham.

The lecture tour will last for around 1.5 hours, starting with an introductory talk with refreshments, and then moving round the garden to focus on select pieces on display. If you have key ideas/artists/materials you would like to focus on, please get in touch to discuss your preferences. Due to the nature of the garden, it may not be possible to alter the suggested route for larger groups as some areas are too small/narrow to hold more visitors.

After the guided tour, visitors are welcome to explore the rest of the Sculpture Garden at their own pace. 

6 to 10 people         £20 per person

11 to 20 people         £18 per person

More than 20 people     £16 per person

Including tea and coffee (with biscuits) upon arrival.  Wine and soft drinks (with savoury nibbles) can also be arranged for afternoon/early evening tours - please contact for more details.

No other visitors will be allowed in during the lecture tours, but may arrive after.

All prices are inclusive of VAT

Large groups can only visit the Sculpture Garden between the first weekend in April and the last weeked in October on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, when the Garden is not open to the general public. A 25% deposit is required at the time of booking for all groups.

The deposit is non refundable and must be received at least 2 weeks before your visit, otherwise your visit runs the risk of being cancelled.

Please note, that our driveway is not suitable for coaches. We advise groups to come in either their own cars or in one or two minibuses. Standon Lane is very narrow and very rural. If a coach is the only option, a map and instructions can be found here.

Please wear sensible shoes or Wellington boots. After heavy rain the Garden can be a bit muddy or slippery in places.

Group visits must be settled up on the day of the visit, when exact numbers are confirmed.

Booking form - please include the date, number of visitors and what type of visit you would like.

We will be in touch shortly to confirm your visit.

Alternatively, please feel free to phone us on 01306 627269 to discuss your visit.
