Zig Zag Walk then Gilbert White House at Selborne


First we will walk up and along the Zig Zag Path (stunning views of the village, which is where Gilbert White apparently got his inspiration) which leads us down to Gilbert White House.

Come and enjoy a special day out at this fascinating and most original museum commemorating important individuals in the exploration of the natural world, set in an historic village in beautiful countryside.










After we have wandered round the house and museum, we will walk around the delightful gardens and through the Park to see the follies, then a welcome snack in the Tea Palour.

A keen gardener from his youth, White increasingly took a close interest in the natural world around him, and grew a wide range of traditional and experimental fruit and vegetables. He was the first person in this area to grow potatoes for example, and it was this keen, enquiring interest in gardening that led him to begin his first written work, of recording methodically what he sowed and reaped, the weather, temperature and other details.  This he went on to call his ‘Garden Kalendar’

    Lovely magical mystery tour walk and Gilbert White House and Gardens were very enjoyable, especially the erection. Icing on the cake was seeing the wedding party and the weather holding out. Thanks Pauline.
