Garden Tours - Roses
Learn about Scotney's Picturesque garden as it changes through the seasons. From 14 June to 14 July the focus is on roses.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
Enjoy the scents and colours of the roses around the garden with one of our guides, from neat rose borders and wall-trained roses in the Walled Garden to gently rambling roses that delicately decorate the old castle ruins. Learn about the different varieties and how to get the best from your roses at home.
No need to book - just meet at the front of the mansion house.

What is Gift Aid?
Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.
Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:
- Gift Aid Admission
- Standard Admission
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.
Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:
|Amount paid by visitor||£11.00||£10.00|
|Tax refund from Government*||£2.75||£0.00|
|Total received by the National Trust||£13.75||£10.00|
