There is a great deal of seasonal interest at the Arboretum, and the most popular times to visit are late April for bluebells and October for autumn colour. The suggested length for a visit is between one and two hours.
Groups will be met on arrival at the Arboretum. Students and teachers will be given a short introduction to the collection, told about the best places to work and the expectations of the Arboretum staff.
Teachers can choose whether or not to have a longer introduction to the collection in which students are told about the work of artists associated with each venue.
