Visit to Stratfield Saye
Wednesday 05 June 2019

An outing to Stratfield Saye - the country home of the Duke of Wellington. We will have the whole house and gardens to ourselves, and will be given guided tours of the house in small groups.

We will leave at 9:15am from King George V car park. Stratfield Saye is just north of Basingstoke (on the way to Reading), so hope to arrive about 10am. We'll then have tea/coffee and biscuits, before our guided tours of the house. You will be free to stroll round the gardens, before or after having lunch (included in ticket price). All food comes from their farm shop.

We will then leave about 2:30pm, and on the way back will stop off at West Green House Gardens, where you can wander round their beautiful gardens and/or have a cup of tea. We will then leave about 4:30pm to finish our journey back to the KGV car park, arriving about 5:30pm.

Ticket price is £50 and includes tea/coffee and biscuits on arrival, guided tour and lunch at Stratfield Saye. West Green House Gardens is National Trust, and so if you're a member, entrance is free. If not the entrance fee is £8.
