Sherborne Town, Castle & Gardens (18 Sep 18)

39.00

Sherborne Castle, Dorset, has been the Wingfield Digby family home since 1617. The new exhibition – Sir Walter Raleigh at Sherborne – will mark the 400th anniversary of his execution. Come and visit the Castle’s rich interiors with its nationally important collections of art, furniture and porcelain, together with Raleigh’s original kitchen, family artefacts and archaeological ‘finds’ from the old medieval castle on view in the castle cellars. Please explore their 42 acres of beautiful gardens and grounds and soak up the beauty, peace and tranquility of this natural setting. Capability Brown in 1753 created the 50 acre lake and gave us the very latest in landscape gardening, with magnificent specimen trees, herbaceous borders and sweeping lawns. The Tea Room serves delicious light lunches and afternoon teas and the Gift Shop has a selection of gifts, souvenirs  and their very own Sherborne Castle Wines.
