Except  for  March (Mar 9.30 )  ALL  VISITS  WILL  LEAVE  AT 9.00AM.  Most visits will be £30 but May’s visit will be £40 as Pentillie charges £16.50 per head for entry /refreshments. May’s trip is also the one which involves the most walking over uneven paths. If you have a National Trust card, please bring it to all trips as we may call in to properties. 

Trips include entry, guided tours, and transport (we do not aim to raise any surplus, but simply cover costs, and if costs are lower, the trips could be charged a lesser amount). Of course, the more people who book seats to fill a coach or minibus, the cheaper it is! In order to help our administration and to avoid problems with the coach company, please book well in advance – please find a substitute if for some reason you have to cancel.
