Tour the newly opened RHS Hilltop Science Centre

With the opening of the Hilltop Science Centre at Wisley, the RHS deepens its studies into the most critical issues facing gardeners today.

Around 70 scientists and students will be based at RHS Hilltop, with research set to focus on helping gardeners adapt to the challenges posed by climate change and pest and disease threats, and the growing understanding of the role gardens and plants play in supporting health and wellbeing.

Hilltop is a state-of-the-art home to unparalleled collections including 25,000 entomology specimens, 90,000 dried plants in the Herbarium, and a library of more than 28,000 books, artworks and items of horticultural literature dating back 500 years.

The RHS is offering free tours of the newly opened Hilltop science centre at Wisley.

Tours are every Wednesday at 10.45 a.m. and 1.15 p.m. The tour is free, but normal garden admission applies, so you may have to pay to enter the gardens. No reservations needed for garden entry, but Tour tickets must be pre-booked.
