Take a “Tour and Talk” – a guided seasonal trip around the fascinating flora flourishing in Tretower’s recreated medieval garden.

Have you ever wondered what day-to-day life was like in the medieval period, with questions such as “What sort of food did they eat?” and “How did they deal with aches and pains?” Well, now you can discover the answers! Come and join one of our “tour and talk” sessions, where your guide – in period costume, naturally – will be in residence to give appropriate seasonal advice on the herbaceous contents of Tretower’s idyllic grounds.

Tours at 11am, 1pm and 3pm.
