Woolsthorpe Open Gardens

Please note
This event ran in 2018 but we don't yet have this year's details. When we get them, we'll add them, but in the meantime we include below event information from last year to remind you about the event.

 approx 7 gardens opened Woolsthorpe by Colsterworth, Lincolnshire
Sunday 8th July 2018
10.00am to 4.30pm

There will be a variety of interesting gardens for you to explore. There will be a refreshment stop where you can relax with tea, coffee or a soft drink and maybe indulge in a light snack or a slice of home-made cake.

There will be artwork displays in two gardens and you might choose to enter our garden quiz. This weekend is also our village Scarecrow Festival, so keep a lookout for scarecrows displayed in front gardens around the village.

Woolsthorpe is a pretty village. It was the birthplace of Sir Isaac Newton and Woolsthorpe Manor, his family home, is now a National Trust property and open to the public.

No dogs in the gardens please, except assistance dogs.

Proceeds go towards the upkeep of St John the Baptist Church in neighbouring Colsterworth.

Cost:  3.00 for the day, or buy a combined ticket to include Colsterworth on Saturday for 5.00; accompanied under 16s free.
