Quex House is a hidden gem tucked away in north east Kent. A private house belonging to the Powell Cotton family, it contains an extraordinary museum specialising in 19th Century natural history and, in particular, several stunning dioramas. The other sections include Oriental fine arts, ceramics and weaponry. The visit consists of a guided tour of the museum, an opportunity to explore the house and learn the family history, and a chance to discover the lovely Victorian walled garden with the original glasshouses.

The group will meet at 11.00am for coffee and a talk from the guide followed by a visit to the museum. Lunch can be booked separately in their dining room or you can bring your own picnic. The house can be visited from 1.00pm. There is also an excellent garden centre and craft village. This is a very varied visit designed to cater for several tastes - art lovers, historians, natural historians, gardeners - or all four!

More details are available on the booking form. Please contact the organiser below for details.
