Open Doors - Tours of the Mansion upper floors

Details

Head Gardener Joseph Atkin will be giving tours of the Gardens, which are a great opportunity to learn more about Aberglasney’s beautiful plant and floral collections.

The tours will include the Old Piggeries, which were restored from their derelict state into a heritage horticulture and plant production facility in 2016 thanks to a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Tours will set off from the Mansion portico at 11am, 12pm, 1pm and 2pm. There will be no charge to join the tours, but normal admission applies to non-Members. Each group size will need to be limited to around 40. Booking is not required; a ‘first come, first served’ approach will be taken should groups be too large.
