PAST VISITS AND TRIPS
Day trip on Friday 22 April 2022
Our 2 hour guided tour of the house was split into 2 groups of 20 and was followed by a short visit to the formal gardens. The 16th century castle contains many great art works including portraits by Reynolds and Gainsborough and some historic furniture. The Earl of Radnor’s family have been partnered with the National Gallery for many years.
The visit was followed by an excellent buffet lunch in the nearby Radnor Arms.
Our visit to the Castle was unguided although there were room guides. The ticket also included access to the Egyptian Exhibition; the fifth Earl of Carnarvon excavated Tutankhamen’s tomb with Howard Carter in 1922. The gardens are extensive and visiting was included with our entrance ticket.
