Arts Association coach trip- Buscot Park and Cirencester
Price: £ Varied
Buscot Park is a National Trust property and the home of Lord Faringdon and his family. Built in the 18th century, the house was greatly enlarged by Lord Faringdon who commissioned Harold Peto to design the famous Italianate water garden, as well as laying the foundations of the stunning Faringdon Collection. Among the purchases were Rembrandt’s portrait of Pieter Six, and Rossetti’s portrait of Pandora. Most amazing of all is the collection of Burne-Jones panels; surrounding the walls of one of the living rooms is his famous series ‘The Legend of the Briar Rose’ . The gardens are extensive and there are also cafés both inside and outside.
As Buscot does not open until 2pm, we will go via Cirencester and stop for coffee and a snack there before going on to the house and grounds.
Cost: £28.00 (plus £10 entry unless you are NT members) (non-members add £2 per ticket)
