Historic gardens weekend at Weald and Downland Museum – 24-25 June

Enjoy a weekend dedicated to six period gardens at Weald and Downland Museum, 24 – 25 June 2017. Discover the herbs, vegetables and flowers that rural households would have grown and used from Tudor times right up to the Victorian era.

There will be displays, guided walks and talks, plus a chance to view a short film about the gardens. You can also chat to the gardening team and see the Museum’s Herbarium.

Find out how the plants grown in the Museum’s gardens are used for medicinal and culinary purposes, as well as natural dyeing and other uses. You can also learn how important gardens were to the ordinary working rural people of the past and how they would have been managed.

The Historic gardens Weekend will take place from Saturday 24 June and Sunday 25 June 2017. The Museum is open from 10.30am until 6.00pm, with the Historic Gardens Weekend activities taking place between 11.00am and 5.00pm. Standard admission prices apply (free for Annual Members).

Visitors with disabilities are advised to contact the Museum in advance of their visit, to discuss the easiest way to access the site.
