Event Details

£10 – Young Georgians

A brilliant opportunity for Young Georgians to not only hear a talk by one of our leading landscape designers but to also visit two of his works. This event, organised by Frederick Hervey-Bathurst in collaboration with Winchester College, will begin with a talk by Kim Wilkie at 2pm at the College, a short walk from Winchester station.

Kim will then guide the group on a tour of his works at Shawford Park and The Holt Estate.

The landscape surrounding Shawford, a seventeenth-century house set in the base of the Itchen Valley, has been much lauded for its imaginative restoration and scale of vision, involving plantations of 1000 new trees, new rills which intersect the watermeadows, and earthworks which offer marvellous prospects back to the house.

At The Holt, Kim’s amphitheatre responds elegantly to the house and its history and typifies his approach to landscape design, setting the stage for drama of all sorts! We are enormously privileged to have Kim leading our tour but also look forward to hearing from the owners and curators of both landscapes who have generously invited us in.

Please read our Terms and Conditions before booking.

This event is open to Young Georgians only.
