Private tours and group visits

Private guided tours and group visits around Jekka’s Herbetum,

With the Herbetum being an inspiration to such a diverse range of interests we now host private group visits for garden groups and corporate companies. Over the last year we have welcomed many visitors to the Herbetum, not only from the UK but also from all over the world including Singapore, Australia, America and Japan. Our visitors cover a wide spectrum of interests, from gardeners, landscape designers and cooks to perfumers, food manufactures, vets and zoo keepers.

These tours usually take just over an hour and are taken by Jekka or one of our Senior Horticulturists. After the tour your group will be offered light refreshments of homemade cakes, herbal teas and coffee. You then have the opportunity to browse our nursery and purchase herb plants from our vast collection that we propagate and grow on the farm. Our experienced and helpful staff will be on hand to advise on suitability of any potential purchase. You will also be able to buy Jekka’s books, seeds, herbal teas and our new range of products from our farm shop. We recommend that you allow 2 hours for your visit.

Please note that these events need to be booked in advance and are subject to the availability of Jekka at the Herbetum. Tours are available from 2pm – 4pm on Tuesdays; however, we can be flexible. The cost of a tour is £300 for groups up to 20 with £15 pp for every additional person up to a maximum of 30. Please use the enquiry form to check availability.
