Group visits for adults

Group visit

To make sure that your group visit to Brownsea Island is as simple as possible we ask that you pre-book your visit. Group admission rates are available for parties of 15 or more, please see our prices page for the latest information.

Free introductory talk

Every day we offer a free introductory talk to our day visitors at 11.30am and 2pm.  If you are bringing a large group and think you would like to join one of these talks, then please email  group bookings ( in advance and we can arrange for an extra volunteer to be available on the day to give you the talk.

Alternatively, we have a number of guided walks running through the season that can be found in the what's on section.  If your group would like to join one of these walks, please let us know in advance so that we can make suitable arrangements for your group.
