Trips and Days Out

Trips and Days Out

Throughout the year Purbrook Horticultural Society and trip organiser Ann Richardson plan and lay on a varied range of coach trips to visit stately homes, and beautiful gardens. On this page you can see our list of forthcoming days out for the year ahead.

2021 Days Out - Planning ahead for 2021

The plans are already underway for 2021 days out with Purbrook Horticultural Society. We need to look at prices and actual dates, and obviously monitor the current Coronavirus situation.


Updated: 1st August 2020
In line with Government Guidelines, and watching and reviewing the current situation as it unfolds, there are still some Covid-19 restrictions being put in place by the Government. As a Society we also have a duty of care to our members, many who are vulnerable and still need to take precautions during these unprecedented times we are living in.

Although trips have been cancelled for the rest of 2020, our intention is to hopefully re-organise for 2021 the same venues at approximately the same time of year, regulations permitting.

Updated information will be reported via web site/email/phone/facebook as received.
