A guided tour with a member of the curating team of Eastwoodhill is one of the very best ways to enjoy Eastwoodhill and discover new and amazing facts about the national arboretum and the 25,000 plants and trees it contains.

Guided tours take about 40 minutes and can be adjusted to accommodate your schedule, but we encourage you to allow extra time to enjoy the gardens and grounds after the guided tour.

  • All guided tours must be booked at least 2 days in advance.
  • Guided tours run between 10am-3pm daily. Tours outside of these times can be arranged through a special request.
  • Please wear comfortable walking shoes and weather appropriate attire.
  • Complimentary admission for one group leader or tour manager, and the motor coach driver.
  • Gourmet box lunches, buffet lunch or tea at the Douglas Cook Centre available on request (additional costs apply).
