Chippenham Park (Cambs) – Snowdrops & Newmarket

Friday 14th February 2020

 

 

 

The beautiful gardens are rated among the finest in Britain, with a recent top two-star award from the Good Gardens Guide – the highest accolade.  And as an article in Country Life says “Chippenham is  a place of superlatives.”

Close to both Ely and also Cambridge, Chippenham Park is a private Grade II listed family home set in 300-acres. This is an historic garden, first created in the 17th century and some features have remained static throughout history including the walled kitchen garden, the formal waterway and complex waterways, and some of the trees.The 40-acre formal and informal gardens are spectacular all year round – from possibly the greatest display of delicate and naturalised snowdrops and aconites in East Anglia in February, daffodils and early spring bulbs in April, summer borders and roses in June through to late-summer borders and autumn colour. There are some lovely walks by the lakes, canals and through the ‘Wilderness’ – an area of berrying trees and shrubs.

Enjoy some time in Newmarket before we visit the beautiful Chippenham Park

Norfolk Day Out with Thursford Collection – Coach Travel from Norwich

Monday 27th April 2020

 

 

Enjoy a day out in Norfolk including the wonderful Thursford Collection!

Come and see the world’s largest collection of steam engines and organs, hear Robert Wolfe one of the world’s leading theatre organists play the mighty Wurlitzer at 12.30pm and 2pm daily, ride on fairground carousels and the gondola, enjoy “Back Stage Tours” and watch silent movies.

Magnificent Steam Machines
Come and explore the country’s finest collection of steam traction engines and get up close and personal with these magnificent machines of yesteryear. Steam power on the land, the roads, and eventually on the fairground did not have a very long life. From the middle of the last century until the First World War it enjoyed its heyday, developing superlative engineering skills and techniques which are still admired today. But by the 1920’s, steam was faltering before the challenge of diesel and petrol engines. By the 1940s steam vehicles were heading in their thousands to scrap yards.

Marvel at the Music

In 1904, when the founder of Thursford Collection, George. T.H. Cushing MBE was born, the visiting fair was an irresistible draw to every village across the land. George was taken to the fair when he was just eight years old which filled him with sights and sounds he was never able to forget, and ultimately his passion for creating the Thursford Collection. It was the amazing sounds of the fairground organs that had a particularly magical effect. It’s just the same effect we see on visitors to Thursford today when they see and hear the wonderful sound of George’s amazing collection of fairground organs.

Lunch in the barn and shop in our ‘Olde Worlde’ shopping village. All this and our fantastic play area has plenty to delight children of all ages.
