Longstock Water Gardens in May

The Cruising Committee is planning a private visit to these famous and beautiful Water Gardens just north of Stockbridge, starting at 10.00 a.m, and open to all members.
There will be a short talk about the Water Gardens, then we are free to wander round.

There are plenty of places to sit down on the way round, but no shelter (other than trees!) should it rain. The visit should take about 90 minutes in total and the gardens are stunning in May!

We plan to follow the visit with lunch at the Longstock Nursery and Farm Shop Café a short drive away. The gardens and the Farm Shop are part of the Leckford Estate, which is owned by John Lewis. 

If there is sufficient interest in travelling by coach from Hamble we will look into arranging a coach, but this will depend entirely on uptake. The Water Gardens are approximately an hour's drive from Hamble. The cost will be £10.50/head for the Water Gardens and this will be debited to your club card.

Please email Ann Arscott at  if you would like to join us.
Please also advise whether you would like to eat at the Farm Shop Café, and if you would be interested in travelling by coach ASAP.

Closing date Tuesday May 1st
