Places to Visit

If you fancy a day out and want to visit somewhere a bit different, then why not try the beautifully restored house and gardens of natural history pioneer Gilbert White. Then travel the natural world through the collections of Frank Oates, explorer and naturalist and Lawrence Oates who was part of the fateful Terra Nova expedition to the South Pole. There is a museum, fascinating historic collections and educational activities for the whole family.

The Gardens are open and you can purchase tickets here.   The House will re-open on the 18th May 2021.
