Planned Visits

Wed, 29 May 2024

Status: CONFIRMED
Meet at: Station Car Park
for: 9:00 am

DESCRIPTION

Discover the myths and memories of an ancient country house, a compelling time capsule of 400 years of family life. Chastleton House is a National Trust property close to Moreton-in-the -Marsh in the Cotswolds.
The house is a compelling time capsule. 
We will have a guided tour at 11 am when the house is closed to the general public and afterwards, we will be free to explore further as we wish and to enjoy the gardens. St Mary’s Church next door offers teas and the gardens are ideal for picnics if you want to to do that. This visit is almost fully subscribed.

DESCRIPTION

The Museum of English Rural Life explores the history of the English countryside and its people. The museum is free to visit and is one of the best things to do in Reading. Whether on your own or with friends and family, discover our galleries, research our collections, refresh in our café, browse our shop, or relax in our garden.

We are a part of the University of Reading and work with Reading Museum as the Arts Council England-funded Museums Partnership Reading.
