Summer Supper and Jekyll Talk

Wed, 18th Jul at 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm

This year we’re celebrating 175 years since the birth of Gertrude Jekyll, who along with Architect Edwin Lutyens, designed Hestercombe’s Formal Garden.

Enjoy a rare ‘after hours’ tour of the garden with our Head Gardener Claire Greenslade who will explain how Gertrude Jekyll created a garden full of summer colour.

After the tour, sit down to a delicious supper in the Column Room restaurant and enjoy the fantastic view of Jekyll’s creation.

£33 per person.

The tour of the Formal Garden will involve steps so regrettably it won’t be suitable for wheelchair users.  Suitable footwear should be worn, particularly in the case of wet weather.
