Botanica - A Garden & Sustainability Festival
Beautiful Rippon Lea Mansion

Pack a picnic and take a walk along the garden paths set amongst the 14 acres of beautiful gardens that lead to the majestic Rippon Lea Mansion. Pick a spot, maybe beside the gorgeous lake, spread out your favourite picnic rug and goodies and enjoy the day. There will also be a selection of organic wines and beers to wash it all down.

The Gatehouse Tea Room will be open with a range of food, hot and cold drinks. The Gatehouse Gift Shop will also be open stocking a lovely selection of gifts and homewares.
