Walking Weekend (Ticketed)
Join Richard Pailthorpe, former Museum Director, on a guided two-mile stroll around the Museum parkland which will include the coppiced woodland and the adjoining boundary with West Dean Park. The Museum site forms part of the 19th Century eastern landscaped parkland created by the James family. The walk will explore areas that are not usually accessible to Museum visitors. Participants will learn about the development of the Museum from when it was founded in 1967 and the history of the surrounding landscape over the last 2000 years, taking in some spectacular views along the way. In general the walk will be relatively easy going along established footpaths, however, please note there is one small uphill section. Dogs on a lead and all ages welcome.
£5 each to include 50% discount for return visit to Museum.
Please wear sensible and sturdy shoes to walk in, some paths at the Museum are uneven. The walk is approximately 2 miles.
