Henry Moore tasked his Foundation to encourage a love of the visual arts and so educational visits are at the heart of our activities at Henry Moore Studios & Gardens.
We offer guided tours of the sculpture gardens, studios & Aisled Barn free of charge, to school and college groups from Year 3 upwards. Bookings can be made for one class (up to 30 pupils) and their adult helpers on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings.The guided tours take approximately 1½ hours and after your group’s lunch slot you will have time to draw or take photographs in the grounds.
We still have some availability for schools in September and October 2018. Please fill in the form below and one of our team will get back to you. The Studios & Gardens are open until Sunday 28 October 2018. As in previous years, we offer school visits on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings. Please read the 'Booking information' carefully before submitting your visit request form.
