The visit will start with a guided tour of Sherbourne
Castle, which was built by Sir Walter Raleigh in 1594. It has been the residence
of the Digby family since 1617 and boasts splendid interiors and collections of
fine furniture, art and porcelain. There are 40 acres of lakeside gardens. After
time for a picnic lunch in the grounds or a snack at the cafe, we will visit the
Abbey in the centre of town. After a brief guided tour there will be time for
further viewing or to visit one of the town's excellent tea rooms before the
coach leaves at 5pm.
