 Spring Colour Walk with Head Gardener Toby Beasley

Wednesday 26th April @11.00 am

 

Come and join Toby, Osborne House’s Head Gardener, on his guided Spring Colour Tour of the flora of the Osborne Estate. Enjoy his unique knowledge of the colourful grand bedding-plant display in the terrace gardens and the host of daffodils on the grass slopes below. Stroll through the woods to Swiss Cottage to see the array of bluebells and bulbs, some planted by local school children, and smell the fragrance of the wild garlic as we make our way to the beach.

Share with us a glass of ‘Osborne Spring Spritzer’ and tasty nibbles at Queen Victoria’s Exedra as we say goodbye to Toby at the end of the tour. Non-alcoholic and gluten free available on request.

This walking tour down to the beach will take approximately one hour and a half and suitable footwear and clothing are required. The café on the beach should be open and the electric bus for the return should be available.

Numbers for this popular walking tour are limited to 30, with priority booking given to members up to the 12th  of April and to guests thereafter.

Ticket price for this exclusive escorted tour, including drinks and nibbles at the beach, is £12.
