Last Call: Bicton Coach Trip on September 17th

Tuesday 17th September

Coach trip to Bicton Park Botanical Gardens.

Once recognised as being one of the finest gardens in England, Bicton Park is set on a hillside leading down to formal water gardens with canals, fountains, a small stream and a large lake. A fernery and rock gardens are overlooked by a flint stone hut which houses a shell collection. The pinetum and arboretum boast over 1,000 trees, including 25 Champion (exceptional specimen) Trees, and the drive to the nearby college is flanked by an extraordinary avenue of monkey puzzles. One of the main features of Bicton park is the semi-circular Palm House, built in the 1820s, which predates the one at Kew by 20 years and comprises Tropical, Arid, and Temperate Houses.

There is a restaurant on site.
