Put on some headphones and travel throughout the super garden in a zen like experience, as you listen to music and audio responses to our iconic plants, and found out how they came to be here.

You can choose to listen to the audio and music, or the music only channel.

Estimated time: 40mins – 1 hour

The Audio Tour features text by renowned author and environmentalist Jon Drori (author of bestseller "Around the World in 80 Trees") set to original music from cutting edge musicians and created by Olivier Award winning sound designer Tom Gibbons. Around each plant you’ll also find creative responses from award winning poets.
