Group Tours

Unfortunately, group tours of the Sunnylands estate are no longer available. The need to arrange group tours months in advance makes them incompatible with the trust’s retreat schedule.

During season, on the 15th of each month, individuals are welcome to buy a maximum of seven tickets for tours taking place the following month. Tickets may be purchased online only through our ticketing company.

Groups may visit Sunnylands Center & Gardens, open Wednesday through Sunday from 8:30 am to 4 pm (September—June) at no charge. We only ask that you fill out a simple form. At the Center & Gardens, guests may walk the garden paths (approximately 1.25 miles) and view a 20-minute orientation film on the Annenbergs and Sunnylands (featured every hour and half-hour on a first-come, first-served basis; the theater is limited to 70 seats). In addition, guests can experience the various sculptures, wall panels, art exhibition, and enjoy our café and gift shop.
