Summer visit – Waterperry Gardens
July 9, 2015 @ 12:30 pm - 5:00 pm
- Nestling within the old Oxfordshire village of Waterperry, Waterperry Gardens is one of the finest ornamental gardens in the country. The Gardens were the dream of Beatrix Havergal who set up her School of Horticulture for Ladies in the early 1930s. Amongst a host of attractions the gardens feature a purely herbaceous border, formal knot, rose and alpine gardens, riverside walk and lily gardens.
- The Society has negotiated a Group Booking with a reduced entrance fee. We have booked for 20 people but there is no limit to the numbers that can be accommodated.
- The Entrance Fee gives access to all areas of the Gardens including A Saxon Church and a museum of rural life.
- In addition to the attractions, some of which are listed above, The Society has arranged for a Guide tour of the Gardens which is programmed for 1pm.
- It is suggested that attendees congregate in the Teashop entrance at approx 12.30.
- Transport to the Gardens will be private car. The gardens are signposted off the A40 south of Oxford taking a left turn off the main road. The post code is OX33 1LG Where necessary those visitors without transport will, where possible, be accommodated in other cars travelling to Waterperry. Journey time to Waterperry is approx 35mins.
- A Teashop is on site but no pre-arranged lunches or teas have been ordered.
- The fee for this visit will be £10 – this to include the entrance fee to the Gardens and the Guided tour.
