This December, a landscape-wide advent calendar is coming to Prior Park Landscape Garden in Bath, and residents are being invited to explore the grounds with the whole family.
Exploring the garden, you will come across a whole host of decorative little wooden doors, which open to reveal festive finds and challenges.
Trail sheets, to help you find all the doors, can be collected from visitor reception.
Prior Park Landscape Garden, looked after by the National Trust, is currently undergoing a large restoration project to restore the Georgian dams.
The work is in the early stages, and while the garden is a hive of activity for the project during the week, at the weekends when the gates open to the public over the winter, the diggers will be silent and allow for peaceful winter wanders.
The Tea Shed, now relocated to the Cabinet at the top of the garden, is on hand every weekend with a selection of hot drinks to warm up chilly fingers, plus lunchtime paninis, cakes, scones, snacks and cold drinks.
While winter opening is limited to weekends only (November to January), Boxing Day and New Year’s Day provide another opportunity to explore the winter garden and to stretch the legs after the indulgences of Christmas Day.
