Plant Hunters Weekend at Lullingstone Castle

Aug 21, 2017

Celebrating the lives of some of Britain’s most intrepid plant hunters, Tom and friends in period dress lead a guided tour of the World Garden at 1.30 – 3.30pm – join at any time! Visitors are offered a unique glimpse into the past to experience an authentic plant hunter’s expedition camp, complete with plant presses, roaring fire, porters and canvas tents.

2017 we will be joined by Second Chance Animal Rescue (SCAR). They have very special animals and reptile guests joining us during our garden tour. SCAR expert handlers during the garden tour will showcase different animals amongst the continents to truly bring the tour alive, a Tawny Owl in Europe, a Raccoon in North America and even a Tanuki as you walk through Asia plus many more!

26- 28th August 11.00 – 5.00pm. Adults £10, children under 15 free.

Garden & Health Week – Mill Dene

Aug 16, 2017

This week we are opening for Gardens and Health Week under the auspices of the National Garden Scheme,
We are hoping to open like this on a regular basis. It is magical watching the effect just sitting in a lovely green environment can have on people recovering from illness or bereavement, or just the unhappier bits of life.

This week we welcome people from 10 to 5 Monday to Friday 14 – 18 August.
