Appleton Manor & Rousham Park
A visit to Oxfordshire will include two contrasting private gardens. The first is the beautiful contemporary garden surrounding Appleton Manor. Said to be the oldest inhabited private house in the country, the garden was designed by Arne Maynard, who has restored several important Elizabethan landscapes. In the afternoon we will visit Rousham Park, including a guided tour of the house. This garden, designed by William Kent, is one of only a few to have escaped alteration.
In 2018, the Terracotta Warriors make a rare visit from China for an exhibition at Liverpool World Museum. We will visit this exhibition on Saturday 22 September, and will have the opportunity to explore the fine civic architecture of which Liverpool is justifiably proud.
