Itinerary: Easter weekend in Kent & Bucks

4 days.  The only guaranteed 4 day bank holiday weekend of the year.

Many houses & gardens open for the first day over Easter.

Here’s where we went (though you could spread divide this into Kent & Buckingham and make two weekends of it).

Both trips start and end in Central London.

Kent & Sussex

Buckingham & Bedfordshire

  • Wrest Park: formal gardens like they were made yesterday
  • Woburn Abbey: now I’ve made it to the centre of their maze
  • Stonor Park: never before been refused information and told to buy the guide book
  • Stowe House: what happens when a school takes over a country house
  • Syon House: passing the time in prison

No, we weren’t working our way through the alphabet on days 2 & 3 but it felt like it.

When we visited (March 2013), all of these houses & gardens offered free entry with either National Trust, RHS or English Heritage/Art Fund membership.

Theme tune – off we set…
