Summer Outings 2017
On June 7th 2017 we visited the lovely city of Wells, in Somerset, with the main activity being a guided tour of the magnificent cathedral – the earliest cathedral to be built in the Gothic style. The party was split into two, and both guides was very informative, but relaxed.
Summer Excursion to Kensington Palace, London
Wednesday, 2nd August 2017 saw a party of 42 members and guests head for London by coach to visit Kensington Palace situated in Kensington Gardens, home to royalty for over 300 years. In addition to the Palace and Gardens, we saw an exhibition highlighting Queen Victoria’s life, the Queen’s Rooms and the King’s Rooms, and perhaps the highlight for the ladies, an exhibition featuring some exquisite dresses from the Diana, Princess of Wales collection. This year they also have the ‘Diana White Garden’ in her memory. Some members also took the opportunity of having morning coffee and/or lunch in the Queen Anne Orangery Restaurant. The weather continued to be unsettled, but did not detract from the day.
