We have decided to go ahead with a group visit on Sunday April 12th, as it is such a good date. This will be done by car-sharing, meeting at the entrance at 11am to get in early while it is as quiet as possible. Normal entrance will apply, and each car-full can sort out their own parking and entrance individually. Sissinghurst no longer does 'timed tickets', and the staff assure me that we should have a good visit. Talks and even demonstrations are often available and are announced only on the day - these are free and anyone is welcome to take part.
As the cafe is reasonably expensive, you may wish to take a picnic (weather permitting); there is plenty of picnicking space with tables and benches. Please don't be put off if the weather is forecast wet; some of the best visits I've ever had have been when the rain was dripping on my umbrella and there was scarcely another soul to be seen!
Please let me know if you are planning to come, so we have an idea of numbers. Do organise your own car-full at your site. Anyone who has spare spaces, or who would like a lift and hasn't been offered one, please contact me and I will match do my best to match people up.
