Venue: Chawton House

Join Chawton House’s Head Gardener Julia for a guided tour of the Chawton House Gardens and learn about their fascinating history.

Explore the gardens and admire the stunning display of daffodils as you learn about the adaptations the Knight family made to the grounds over the centuries.

From Elizabeth Knight’s completion of the formal garden in the early 18th century to Edward Austen Knight’s construction of the Walled Garden and Montagu Knight’s addition of the Library Terrace, you will discover how Chawton House’s gardens have been altered over the centuries to reflect the fashions of the time.

Following your tour, take a seat inside and enjoy your choice of a sweet or savoury cream tea.

The tour will commence at 11:30am and will last around one hour. Following your tour, you will be shown to one of our historic rooms for your cream tea.

£12 per person for the tour and cream tea.
