We have a range of different packages to suit your group’s needs. From our basic peak package and winter package, to our early risers package where you can visit our café for a nice morning coffee and homemade shortbread, before being the first to visit the museum. Or why not choose our Cream Tea package which includes a cream tea reservation in our café for your whole group.

2. White’s Café

5. Go on a Garden Tour

For just £2 extra you can be guided around our garden by a member of our garden team. Our garden is amazing and you can’t properly understand Gilbert White until you understand his garden, and how it inspired his work and reflected his daily life! A must!
