Guided group tours are offered year-around for groups of 7 or more people.

Lakewold has added Youth Tours to its slate of touring options, offering custom tours for children and their leaders who are looking for an opportunity to learn more about our historic garden estate and the variety of plants featured throughout the gardens. Whether focusing on our 100-year history and the families who called Lakewold home, or concentrating on the magnificent Rhododendrons, maples and other rare plants we are known for, we can design a tour that will delight and enlighten your group to ensure a unique experience for all. Allow at least an hour for this visit, depending upon age and other circumstances, and up to 90 minutes if appropriate for your group. $3 per child between ages 7 and 12 (6 and under, free), $8 per adult / $56 minimum. Available for booking Tuesday-Thursday, between the hours of 10:00am and 2:30pm.
