Things to see and do

The Vyne's Victorian bridge

Photo appeal for the Fallen Bridge 

Help us build a more comprehensive visual history of The Vyne's Fallen Bridge. We are keen to hear from visitors who remember this landmark before it collapsed in 1986. We’d love to hear about your memories of the bridge and see any photos you may have at thevyne@nationaltrust.org.uk.

What refreshments are available?

Our cafe will reopen from 17 June and will initially be serving a limited range of takeaway hot and cold drinks and some light snacks. We’ve introduced new safety measures including closure of our seating areas, screens at our till and collection points, and waymarked routes. We’ll also only be accepting card payment. We look forward to welcoming you back and know that you’ll support us to make this a safe experience for everyone.

Our bookshop volunteers pick out their favourite reads.

Our volunteers recommend their favourite books and authors 

We asked our bookshop volunteers to recommend their favourite book or author. Keen readers, they all agree that getting lost in a good book is one of life’s joys, and one of the reasons why they volunteer at The Vyne.
