What better way to begin the new year than with a refreshing walk through Wimpole's historic parkland. Led by one of our outdoors team, it's a great way to blow away those Christmas cobwebs and stride out into 2018.

The basics

Dogs on leads are welcome.
Meeting point
Please meet outside the Stable Block ticket office. A guide will be there to meet you.
