Friend’s Mid-Summer Evening on Friday June 24th - 6-9PM
We will have a Friend’s Mid-Summer Evening on Friday June 24th 6-9pm so that our Friends can enjoy the evening sunlight in the garden, so special over the wild flower meadow and through the avenue of birches. It will be a bookable chargeable event, (same entry fee as normal) but open exclusively to Friends and any partners or plus ones they would like to invite and maybe bring along a special picnic to enjoy in the garden if the weather is fine. Hot/cold drinks and home-made cake will also be available to purchase as usual. We will limit the numbers to make this a special occasion.
Please use our advanced booking system to buy a ticket. Spring and Summer Opening: Every Tuesday from April 5th until September 27th and other key dates.

Beautiful garden that was bought to life with an informative and interesting tour by Kathy Brown. We could have easily stayed all day. The homemade cakes were a delight.
