Big Day Out at Burghley Sculpture Garden
11th June 2016 @ 10:15 am - 4:00 pm£6
Our’s latest Big Day Out is under way! We will be travelling via coach to Burghley Sculpture Garden, Stamford, where we will be given the opportunity to experience visual arts on a large scale! This subsidised trip is family friendly and anyone is more than welcome to attend.
Upon entry to the sculpture garden, visitors are welcomed by a variety of trees and shrubs for all seasons. These shrubs form archways and external rooms where discreetly hidden sculptures can be found.
Entry to the Garden of Surprises is also included within this trip. The Garden of Surprises is hidden from the outside – waiting to reveal it’s surprises to those who enter. Features such as the moss house, the swivelling Caesar busts, basins of water, jets and the mirrored maze have been designed to be accessible to all regardless of age or interest. Children must have appropriate footwear, such as jelly/swimming shoes, to play within the garden.
The plan for the day is as follows:
- 10.15am Meet at Saxon Crown for registration
- 10:30am Depart from The Saxon Crown, Corby
- 11:00am Arrive at Burghley Sculpture Garden
- 3:30pm Depart from Burghley
- 4:00pm Arrive at Corby
There are places available to grab some lunch, or you could bring a picnic for the day.
Included in Child Ticket purchases is the Gruesomely Grubby Gardens guide, where families can enjoy spotting the sculptures and understanding how they have been made, discover the grubby insects and gruesome animals that live in our Sculpture Garden while all the time exploring the gardens and solving the puzzles inside.
Meaning that you can be home just in time for tea! Anyone under the age of 18 MUST be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
