Walks and talks this autumn

Add some colour to your week on an exclusive walking tour of the garden and wider estate at Kingston Lacy. Led by one of the garden or ranger team, each tour will reveal seasonal highlights and histories from different parts of the garden and estate. Autumn also offers the chance to join an interactive talk with the Kingston Lacy beekeepers or why not pop into the Kitchen Garden apple store in September to learn more about how we care for the Kingston Lacy orchards.
