Rose Day at Gunby
Visit on Sunday 23 June for the annual Rose Day. Not only are the many roses in the eight-acre gardens at their best this time of year, there is lots more to enjoy.
There will be rose displays of the 40+ rose varieties grown at Gunby in the stables, plant sales, craft and trade stalls as well as a lovely art exhibition in Orchard Gallery.
Three floors of Gunby Hall are open too to explore and the Gunby tea-room serves hot and cold drinks as well as yummy cakes and sweet treats.
Pick up a mallet to play some croquet or bring a picnic and make a day of it. Dogs on leads are welcome anywhere in the gardens and grounds.
‘Rose Day always marks that summer is really here, says Gunby’s Astrid Gatenby, the gardens are filled with the lovely fragrance and colours of the many roses. Visitors love seeing the roses on display in jars in the stables and chat about which ones they would like to grow in their own gardens. In the rooms of the house lots of roses will be included in flower arrangements, which means it smells delicious inside Gunby Hall too.’
