Petworth Late: Summer Solstice

Enjoy the summer solstice in the Pleasure Garden at Petworth.

  • Booking advisable

Spend the summer solstice watching the sunset in the Pleasure Garden, and along the front terrace of the house, when the grounds are open from 7-10pm. Take a stroll around the garden to see the evening sunlight illuminate the Italian styled Ionic Rotunda and absorb the peaceful atmosphere on the woodland walk. Take a seat on one of the garden benches and enjoy the beauty of nature on this unique evening opening.

There will be live music performances during the evening.

Thursday 20th June, £10. We recommend booking in advance to guarantee entry. Tickets can also be purchased on the night.
