May 22 – Saturday: Drive to Lullingstone Castle
Drive from Blackheath to Lullingstone Castle for lunch
Saturday, 22th May
Lullingstone Castle is one of England’s oldest family estates, dating back to the time of Domesday. The World Garden combines plant heritage with cutting-edge horticulture.
We are invited to park inside the walled courtyard in front of the house!
The house and church will be closed but the garden is open.
We are still not out of lockdown. Please be sensible. Track-and-trace data is taken at the castle.
Food and drink
There is a small cafe at Lullingstone that serves sandwiches, cakes, and drinks. Sandwiches may be limited in number. All food is take away only. Please bring chairs/blankets/etc to set up by your car.
You are encouraged to bring your own picnic!
Enter through the front gates. I will help get you parked up in an attractive way for photos.
£10 per car to be paid upon entrance to the castle.
I will send out the route next week.
