MEMBERS' TRIP: BUSCOT PARK

Monday 15 July

Buscot Park, Faringdon

MEMBERS ONLY

This late 18th century house set in enchanting landscaped grounds will be opened privately for our group. The estate was given to the National Trust in the 1940s with a leaseback of the house and grounds to the Faringdon family. The idea of keeping the contents together and of improving and maintaining the collection took hold in the 50s and 60s. We will have coffee and a tour of the house and after a light lunch (included) there will be time to stroll in the pleasure gardens.

Access: There is a five minute uphill walk to the house from the car park, and there are 14 steps up to the house. Four mobility scooters are available. There is a flight of stairs, with a handrail, to the three showrooms upstairs.

TICKETS: £49
