Discovery Visits at Walmer Castle and Gardens

Enhance your visit to Walmer Castle and Gardens and let our experts lead an immersive Discovery Visit for you. Our hands-on session, which is based in our kitchen garden, will provide fun and inspiring educational activities for you and your pupils and bring learning to life. 



From Plot to Plate

History, Science
KS1, KS2

Get hands-on in our historic kitchen garden with the gardeners and team who care for our gardens today! Understand how the garden was developed at the castle and how it works now. Through games and fun activities, pupils will explore the complete growing and harvesting process of fruits and vegetables – from plot to plate! They’ll learn about different soil types, sow seeds to take home, and find out how to identify garden produce through the seasons. Can they take on the challenge to create a plate of food, using seasonal ingredients, to impress Walmer Castle’s cook? Join us to find out!

  • Availability: March to October: Wednesday and Fridays during term time
