For the Autumn of 2024, we have chosen to visit Waterperry Gardens, near Oxford. We’ll leave by coach as usual from the Marquis of Granby car park. We look forward to seeing you. Everyone is welcome so do bring friends too.

Friday Sept 27Waterperry Gardens, Oxfordshire. Fabulous autumn asters, and much more

Made famous by Beatrix Havergal who established and ran her School of Horticulture for Ladies here from 1932 to 1971. It’s now home to 8 acres of beautifully landscaped ornamental gardens, a quality plant centre and garden shop, gallery and gift shop, museum and tea shop.  We have chosen the date on the advice of the Head Gardener so that hopefully we will see the best display of their outstandingly ‘blousy’ Waterperry asters.  

Our day includes access to the grounds, plant shop, gift barn, gallery and café. By visiting on a Friday, the ornamental garden is free with a current RHS card, and there is an afternoon house fresco tour too.  

The cost of the day is £45. The ornamental garden free with an RHS card, or 11:50 and entry is optional. The afternoon fresco tour, also optional, is £5.00.
