Loseley Park (Surrey)

We were making our way back from West Sussex to London and Loseley Park, near Guildford, was a perfectly situated late morning stop off.

Dating back to the 16th century, during the 17th century a wing was added (off the right hand side of the picture above) and subsequently removed, thus the building today is very similar to that which was built.  Entry was by a guided tour.

Photographs cannot be taken inside but some of the rooms are wonderful enough to have sought out pictures elsewhere on the internet.

We had a spot of lunch (quiche and salad) in the cafe and then visited the gardens, missing the rain.  And off we went, carrying on our journey back to London.

Aaaah, of to be August again.

Bye bye Loseley.  Until next time…

When visited: August 2015
