Tour Kelmarna Gardens Online
Here is a map of the main gardens at Kelmarna.
We wanted to make sure that, even from school or home, you can still have a sort of wander around the place by using this map and looking through pictures of the garden's main areas.
If you've never been to Kelmarna before, then welcome! We hope this helps familiarise you with the place and gets you excited for a visit!
And even if you have been to the gardens before, it might look a bit odd to see a map version of Kelmarma like this - from a bird's eye view, or looking down from above. Of course, we're used to walking through the garden at ground level, so this top-down drawing might take some getting used to!
Did you notice that arrow at the bottom of the map? What do you think that means? That icon is called a compass rose. Map makers, called cartographers, use this feature to tell us the cardinal directions, or which way is north, south, east and west. Remember that the tip of the main arrow always points north.
What about the different shapes and colours? What do they mean? Different maps can have different visual languages that use lines, shapes and colours to communicate information. In order to understand the map, there is usually a box of information called a key or a legend that tells you the rules for that particular map.
See if you can make sense of our space by using the legend to help you figure out what the different colours and shapes mean for this map of Kelmarna. Once you've had a good look at the map, scroll down to take a look around at different notable areas and learn a bit about what goes on in the garden!
