Newstead Abbey Garden History Tour

About

Certain Sunday afternoons in 2018

Enjoy a FREE tour of the gardens of Newstead Abbey, learning about their history with knowledgable guide, Philip Jones.

He will often be accompanied by another guide, who is very knowledgable about the gardens' plants.

The tours take place on certain Sunday afternoons, at 1pm and 2:30pm, depending on availability and weather conditions.

Highlights of the tour include the remains of the oak tree planted by the poet Lord Byron when he was 10 years old; the gloomy Devils Wood with its evil-looking satyrs, contrasting with the colourful herbaceous borders; the maze-like Spanish Garden originally part of the monks' burial ground; the fern garden with its Victorian grotto; plus one of the oldest surviving Japanese Gardens in Britain, complete with stepping stones, stone lanterns and tea-house.

Please book on the day at the house reception, and ring in advance to check whether tours will be running. Normal car parking charges will apply.

Please check Newstead Abbey Garden Tours on their Facebook page for upcoming dates.
