Education Centre

In the current Covid19 situation, until further notice, we are not able to hire out our Education room


Thanks to all your kind donations and fantastic support from other charities and trusts, we raised funds to build a new Education Centre at Batsford Arboretum.

The Education Centre is an ideal space for schools, local clubs, workshops, presentations and much more!

The beautiful 14 metres x 7 metres building is made from Scandinavian Pine with a Cedar Shingle roof. It's fully equipped with a kitchen area, 60 chairs and 12 large trestle tables.

If you would like to hire the Education Centre for your own event, contact us on 01386 701441 or email Private hire costs are as follows:

1 hour - £25
Half day (up to 4 hours) - £50
Full day (up to 8 hours) - £90

If you’d like to include arboretum entry as part of your event, we can provide two free tickets into the arboretum as part of the hire charge and then entry for the rest of your guests is charged at our group admission rate per person, as follows:

£6.00 for adults and £3.00 for children

Please note: If you’re including arboretum admission with your event, full payment is required before entering (either on the day or in advance) and the group must be paid for altogether in a single transaction in order to receive the group admission rate – we can take payment for both the Education Centre and arboretum entry over the phone on 01386 701441 or in person at our arboretum admissions desk.

Catering for your event can be provided by our on-site café, they can be contacted directly at for more information and a quote.
