Group Visits

Tower Hill is a fantastic destination for groups, clubs, and organizations of all kinds. We look forward to welcoming your group. We offer a variety of options including guided or self-guided tours and group tour benefits. Reduced admission rates are available for groups of 10 or more (may mix or match):

Adults $9
Seniors $7
Youth $5

Guided Tours
Your experience at Tower Hill will be enhanced with a guided tour provided by one of our trained staff or volunteers. Discover the rich history of the Worcester County Horticultural Society, understand the genius of the design of Tower Hill, and learn about the many types of plants on display and their landscape value. You will want to take notes as you'll come away from a tour with ideas for your own garden! A minimum of ten (10) or more people qualify as a tour group eligible for the discounted admission rates above. We recommend one tour guide per 25 people, at a rate of $100 per guide.

Self-Guided Tours
With a garden map, and ample signage throughout the property, groups may opt to tour the Garden on their own. Our receptionist can answer general questions about the Garden, and direct groups to particular areas of interest. A minimum of ten (10) or more people qualify as a tour group eligible for the discounted admission rates above. Please pay for your entire group in one transaction and in one form of payment (cash, check, or credit card).

Guidelines for Group Tours

  • Tours typically last 45-60 minutes, and run "rain or shine."
  • Please book your tour at least 2 weeks in advance of requested tour date.
  • It is recommended that guests wear appropriate shoes and clothing for active, outdoor walking.
  • Tower Hill Botanic Garden is a "living museum"; our plant collections are delicate, valuable, and easily damaged. Never remove vegetation that is attached to a plant or lying on the ground. No part of any plant should be eaten.
  • Please stay on garden paths, and do not step into garden beds.
  • Please put trash in designated trash receptacles, and, if you must smoke, please do so outdoors and dispose of cigarette butts in designated containers.
  • Group Tour leaders must stay with their group at all times.
