Date: Monday 23rd August 2021
Price: £40 per person – Includes guided tour of Elton Hall & Gardens & guided tour of Peterborough cathedral
Information: Eton Hall & Gardens – The house has been the home of the Proby family since 1660, although previous generations held land at Elton from the time of Elizabeth I. Elton Hall is enchanting and there is something romantic and magical about the building with its gothic south elevation set at a right angle to the classical, French inspired, entrance wing. Successive generations have embellished both the house and collection, which contains many Old Masters and fine examples of English portraiture. A visit, which also includes the recently restored gardens, provides the visitor with a fascinating insight into British history and taste.
The Garden is accessible for wheelchairs via gravel paths. However, we regret that the Hall is not suitable for wheelchairs, mobility aids or pushchairs. There are several flights of steps, which may be a problem for visitors with walking difficulties, and no visitor seating within the Hall.
Peterborough Cathedral – Peterborough Abbey, which became a Cathedral in 1541, has been at the centre of national and international events for over 900 years. It has been an influential medieval monastery and a royal burial place, survived major damage during the Civil War and enjoyed a period of restoration and rediscovery of its Anglo-Saxon origins in the 19th century. A Highlights Tour will introduce you to these stories and more as you explore the building with a knowledgeable guide.
