Visit to Scampston Walled Garden   Thursday September 15

Scampston Walled Garden, a stunningly beautiful contemporary garden – quite unlike any other was designed by the renowned Dutch plantsman, Piet Oudolf. Our visit includes a guided walk in the Park, which was designed by Capability Brown. Later we will have a private tour of the Hall and you will have time to view the gardens and sample the delicious food in Garden Restaurant.

The coach will leave from the Museum gates at 8.30am returning at 6.00pm. It may be possible to pick up en route if you prearrange with the organiser. And there will be room on the coach for any plants you purchase!

If you have a disability you will enjoy good out-door access at Scampston and there are wheelchairs or mobility scooters for hire. However, your visit to the house might be limited to the ground floor.

Tickets £28 for Friends & Guests £32
