Our next coach trip - CHATSWORTH HOUSE


A date for your diaries.

The society organises two non- profit making coach trips each year. One of them is always to a N.T property and the other to a privately owned one. Obviously, through our membership of Civic Voice, we can obtain the one day a year free pass for our members, and the cost of the visit therefore only needs to cover the cost of the coach and its driver’s tip. The costs involved with the one to a privately owned property need also to include the entrance fee and, inevitably, this makes the visit more expensive.

Our first visit in 2019 will be to Chatsworth House on Wednesday 15th May and will cost £31 a head. This covers the cost of the coach, its driver’s tip and Group Rate entrance to the house and gardens. Guided tours of both the house and the gardens are available at an extra cost of £4 for each of them and need to have at least 15 people in each group but, since they have to be booked a month ahead, booking would have to be made by 17th April at the latest. Not impossible but a little more complicated! The coach will leave the village at 9.15 a.m. and begin the return journey at 4 p.m.  Non-members are most welcome to join us.
