We have a well established educational programme here at the CPG – offering sessions for all Key Stages, including EYFS – to celebrate and learn about the wonderful world of plants, history, geography and art.

We provide unique, fun and valuable learning experiences that, not only meet your curriculum objectives, but are also suited to interests and needs to you and your class and importantly give you all a memorable day out.

Our new film will give you a glimpse of what's in store!


New for 2019: we are in the process of redeveloping some new educational sessions, with the view to have more by September 2019. Here are the first three that we will be trialling during this academic year:

  • Plant hunters (Year 1 and 2) SCI: describe that plants live in environments in which they are suited GEO: use world maps, atlases and globes to identify continents and oceans

  • Eco Warriors (Year 3 and 4) SCI: explore the life cycle of a plant, including pollination and seed dispersal SCI: recognise that environments can change and that this poses dangers to living things

  • Cash crops (Year 5 and 6) SCI: identify ways in which plants adapt to flourish in their environment GEO: explore global economic activity and how this impacts people and the planet.

All sessions run 10.30am– 2pm. Our Education room is available for lunch.

Sessions are available for full-day (£8) or half-day (£6) per child. Adults are free.

Teachers' Open evenings in 2019:

We will be holding 2 of these this year -

Both will be a chance for you to visit Chelsea Physic Garden and see what we have on offer for schools, colleges and home-schooled groups. Our Education team will be here to answer any questions and take you on a tour of this wonderful outdoor educational resource.

You’ll have the chance to learn some new skills around the subject of plants, history, art and science. Wine, soft drinks and nibbles will be available. Entry is free, but booking is essential.
