Tour introduction

Walks   commence at the Founders' Entrance to the Main Garden

The walks are not suitable for children under 6

All children  must be accompanied by an adult – a maximum of 2 children per each adult.  Responsibility for child safety lies with the  parents or caregivers as at night and with large  numbers the guides cannot  monitor all individuals.

All visitors must provide a torch – a minimum of one torch per two people. Children should note the torch is to see the way, not to look at glowworms unless told to do so

Reasonable mobility is required, and good walking shoes should be worn. Access is, however, flat.

On average walks take around 1 hour.

Start and finish at the Founder''s Entrance Glenmore Street

A group on the way

Walks are dependent on sufficient glow worm numbers being present, as numbers do seasonally change. Walks are generally run around the time of the new moon, when low moonlight allows the insects to be seen to their best advantage. Certain environmental conditions can, however, affect viewing, although they can always be seen. They are not in a cave, but are living in protected open places along the streams and banks.
