Whether you're interested in history or just want to take in the beautiful scenery, Claremont Landscape Garden is an ideal place for group visits. You can make sure your group or coach party has the best possible day out by arranging everything with us before you travel.

A Garden fit for a Queen

From a Duke’s retreat to a Princess’ playground, Claremont has always been a place to escape everyday life and enjoy simple pleasures. Steeped in history, Claremont was once the pleasure grounds of the foremost royal residence in the country.

Planning your group visit

Claremont welcomes group visits throughout the year, from Monday to Friday (not including bank holidays). We recommend that you allow at least two hours to see the garden and have enough time to stop for lunch or tea.

Unfortunately, we can’t always offer on-site parking for coaches. We usually recommend dropping off your group in the bell-mouth of the entrance and the coach parking off-site for the duration of the visit.

A minimum of three weeks’ notice is required to confirm your group booking. Discounts are available on bookings of more than 15 people, and we are happy to arrange a warm welcome for your group on the coach.

Guided tours

Want to know more? Join one of our knowledgeable guides who will take you on a tour of the special Grade I listed garden. You can choose one of our three tours: Historic Claremont, The English Landscape Garden or The Best of. Each focuses on a different aspect of the garden, but all include a stop at the top of the grass amphitheatre.

Tours are available on weekdays throughout the year and last 1 hour. The maximum number per tour is 15 people, but consecutive tours can be booked for larger groups. There is a cost of £5 per person.

To request the Groups Booking Brochure, make any further requests or to book, please e-mail the team on and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Free familiarisation visits for group leaders

If you're planning a group visit you can request our free Travel Trade Pass and you and a friend or colleague will gain free entry to over 300 of our places throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland for 12 months. There’s nothing quite like seeing or experiencing somewhere for yourself to help you plan a successful visit. To receive your pass, call 0344 800 2329 or email us at

Who is eligible for free entry?

Registered tourist board guides (on production of a valid badge), coach drivers and tour leaders escorting groups of 15 or more. National Trust members also receive free entry, so it is at your discretion whether to refund the entrance fee to members if you have included it in your package – this is not refunded by the National Trust.

Members must bring their current membership cards with them to avoid paying the full group rate. If any of your group would like to join the National Trust please direct them to our Membership page or call 0344 800 1895.
