A ‘Relaxed’ Walk

A ‘Relaxed’ Walk with Gary Webb, Compton Verney’s Head Gardener.

Tues 7 March & Friday 10 March

Gardens and landscapes are places many people head for special moments of rest and relaxation; they are places to unwind, breathe deeply and refresh the mind and body. Imagine therefore a designed landscape where open views are carefully composed; giving space for the eye to wonder. Imagine also a woodland plantation where characterful trees offer shelter above meandering footpaths, and where grassy primrose studded banks lead your mind to rippling water on a fishing lake.

Imagine no more, as Compton Verney offers all this in abundance, and this new tour offers you a fixed moment to slow down and revitalise, giving time to soak up the ambience of a very special place. During this steady paced walk we’ll endeavour to connect you with the landscape, garden and wildlife that is Compton Verney.

The walk will be for a relaxed hour, on made footpaths and grass; please dress for the weather.

Binoculars and walking stool recommended if you have them.

Free event included in Winter Park admission
