14th July Polesden Lacey and Hatchlands Park
Polesden Lacey is set in the rolling hills of Surrey with an extensive collection of fine and decorative arts from old Dutch Masters to sparkling Faberge. The gardens offer something for all seasons.

View the Cobbe collection of paintings, fine furniture and Europe’s largest collection of keyboard instruments associated with famous composers, and stroll through 400 acres of parkland partly landscaped by Humphry Repton.
Each year a short break holiday is arranged to an area not accessible on day trips for the purpose of visiting National Trust and other properties. Travel is by coach hired for the exclusive use of members on the holiday.
