Lamport Hall the former home of the Isham family for 400 years has a fascinating and chequered history of changing uses over generations and is now restored and full of a wealth of paintings, furniture and books mainly dating from the 17th century. Originally a Tudor manor house with extensive 18th century additions in the classical style.  Experience a tour of the hall, followed by time to enjoy the 10 acre gardens plus a museum of rural life. Coffee or tea on arrival and an optional lunch in the Victorian dining hall.

After lunch, travel on to Coton Manor Gardens. Originally laid out in the 1920’s by the grandparents of the present owners, the garden has been developed and extended by successive generations capitalizing on its natural setting, attractive views and abundant water. The 17th century manor house acts as a central feature of the garden its’ walls supporting many roses and shrubs while the surrounding terraces are home to pots and containers.

The group may also explore the extensive nursery, garden shop and Stableyard Café. 

This event has been organised by the Hertfordshire Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
