With 50 acres of gardens steeped in history and a contemporary art gallery with a changing programme of exciting exhibitions, Hestercombe offers lots of opportunities for learning outside of the classroom for students of any age.
Your school can enjoy year-round visits to Hestercombe with education membership.
From swathes of bluebells in spring, fragrant roses in summer, autumn’s red berries and snowdrops in winter, each season brings something different to see.
Use our beautiful Georgian Landscape Garden as a source of inspiration for creative writing or Rook Wood as a location for Forest School activities; Hestercombe’s diverse landscape can enhance learning across the whole curriculum.
