Morning Coffee will be served on arrival at 10:30 a.m. The party will be divided into 5 groups of 10 and given a guided tour of the house and gardens, which offer an intriguing insight into the life of the Great Duke of Wellington.
We will view the fascinating collection of paintings and furniture and see the wonderful Wellington Exhibition featuring his magnificent funeral carriage and charting his military and political life. The visit will include a light lunch, and afternoon tea.
There are plans to assemble at the Cavalry & Guards Club, 127 Piccadilly, from 7:30 a.m., where coffee and breakfast will be served for those who wish it.
We will leave by coach at 09:00 a.m. sharp, in order to arrive at Stratfield Saye House for a 10:30 a.m., morning coffee. The cost of the visit for members has yet to be finalised but it will be in the region of £30 per person, to which the cost of breakfast and a seat on the coach will need to be added. Members and their guests may wish to make their own way to Stratfield Saye, and to meet there at 10:30 a.m.
We will need to bring our own wine and alcoholic beverages. Tea will be served at 15:30 and the visit will end at 16:30.
Further details including price per person and booking procedures will follow in March. In the meantime, if you have any questions, or suggestions please email the event organiser, Bernard Hornung:
