From early spring until autumn visitors to Misarden Park are rewarded with rich and memorable views: flowers, shrubs, fine topiary (some of it designed by Edwin Lutyens) and, within the walled garden, herbaceous borders, roses, fine specimen trees and a newly-planted parterre. The 17th-century Manor House (not open) stands high overlooking the beautiful Golden Valley.

The Friends of Gloucester Three Choirs Festival are inviting members of the public to spend a day exploring this delightful Cotswold garden. It will include an exclusive guided tour, when Major Wills will speak about the glorious trees and their history and his gardener, Sandra Kilminster, will talk about the pretty borders. There will also be an opportunity to hear more about Lutyens and to view his plans for the rebuilt wing of the manor house.

A two-course buffet lunch including a glass of wine will be served on the covered loggia overlooking the gardens. You are also invited to bring a picnic tea, to be taken where you will in the garden.

Booking is open now for the Misarden Park tour via the Three Choirs Festival Ticket Office: 0845 652 1823

Online booking is also available now.
