to Rousham House in Oxfordshire|
15th June 2017 - all day
directions to Rousham House are available. More
House is a particularly attractive, privately owned house which has been in
the same family for over 500 years. It has exceptional gardens running down to
the River Cherwell which were landscaped by William Kent in the late 17th Century.
It is likely to be a popular visit with wives and partners with a relaxed drive
reaching Rousham by mid morning, then an opportunity for a guided tour of the
house, to see the the gardens and enjoy a picnic lunch. The house is only open
to special parties by prior arrangement so in the morning a guided
tour of the house is planned.
Rousham House has
no catering facilities so you will need to bring morning coffee and refreshments
together with a picnic lunch. Clearly having a picnic in the gardens will depend
on fair weather so be prepared for alternative arrangements if the weather is
inclement. Guests are welcome to attend the event.
