The Garden Tour is the centrepiece of many visits to Chelsea Physic Garden. Each tour is as individual as the guides themselves, lasts 45-60 minutes and is delivered without notes.

It's not easy, but our training programme will make sure you are fully prepared and there's plenty of support available from our 30-strong team of guides. Horticultural experience is an asset, but not a necessity and previous experience as a guide is not required. 

For those working full time, Sunday-only tour guides are very welcome.

Successful applicants join our February and March training programme for five full days, then commit to an average of three half-day sessions per month during our main season (April-October) with a minimum commitment to the Garden of three years.
