A VISIT TO BASILDON PARK
28/06/2017

Cost: £22

Sitting elegantly in 400 acres of historic parkland and gardens this 18th century house was purchased by Lord and Lady Iliffe in the 1950’s when it was de-requisitioned after the Second World War.  They brought Basildon Park back to life acquiring a collection of fine furnishings and some Old Masters.

On arrival you are free to explore the property as you see fit.  The house is open for free-flow from 12 noon but before then you will most probably enjoy a coffee. 

There is currently an exhibition in the house entitled ‘At Home with Art, Treasures of the Ford Collection’.  Outdoors you might like to stroll around the woodland and parkland.  The mansion tea room serves lunch between 12 and 2.30pm with homemade cakes and cream teas available all day and the Parlour in the stable yard offers other refreshments.

We will leave Mitcham at 9.00 am, Wimbledon at 9.30 and Raynes Park at 9.40 for the journey which should take just over an hour.  We will then depart about 4.00pm and, traffic permitting, would hope to be back by 5.30 pm at Raynes Park.
