Fri 22 Sep 2017 2:00 PM  

Join Alan and the gardening team for a short stroll through our enchanting garden recently restored to its 18th Century heyday and listen to the bird song in this little oasis, then enjoy Champagne afternoon tea.

On Friday 22 September, Alan Titchmarsh, Britain’s best-loved gardener and presenter will be opening our Woodland Walk. The Woodland Walk has been created by our Gardener-in-Charge and gardening volunteer team with students from Richmond College planting over 200 new trees, shrubs, flowers and bulbs. This project completes the final piece of our historic garden restoration and has been generously supported by Stanley Smith Horticultural Trust, Richmond Borough Council Civic Pride and the Worshipful Company of Gardeners.

Tickets are £50 and funds raised will go towards the ongoing maintenance of our House and Garden.
