Thousands come every year to see and experience this ancient village with its black and white thatched houses, its history, its spectacular views and gardens.
2015 will be an extra–special year. As well as the gardens, Walkabout attractions include cafés, a bar, a dog show, children's activities, live music and lots of events.
Overlooking Shakespeare’s River Avon, Cropthorne’s ancient orchards sweep down to the river and offer clear, unbroken views across the vale to the Malvern Hills in the distance. It is featured in the Domesday Book, and its church dates back to the 12th century. It has many unique examples of timber-framed thatched cottages unchanged since the 16th and 17th centuries.
For two days each year, the residents welcome visitors by opening many of the most spectacular and striking private gardens. Over the last forty years, this village walkabout has firmly established itself as a favourite attraction not only amongst gardeners, but also for all those interested in a great family day out soaking up the charm and history of rural England.
ITS A GREAT DAY OUT FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY
