Ticket prices includes admission to the Gardens, but adult admission must also be purchased separately on the day.
Summer Foraging Course
Eric and Marlow from Wild Food UK are two men who are obsessed with foraging. They love nothing more than hunting through the great outdoors for their dinner and now they want to share what they’ve learnt with everyone else! A 2.5 hour walk starts and ends at the Star Inn, giving you just enough time to pick up ingredients to cook a tasty meal when you return. This activity is suitable for teenagers and adults.
