Kingston Lacy - Out of House walks

Kingston Lacy are running an additional programme of walks to the Guided Walks detailed below. They are an opportunity to experience the park and estate, including areas not usually accessible, at a tranquil time before normal property opening times. They will be gentle strolls of about 3 miles, starting from the main KL car park.  They are free walks - donations welcome - and open to non National Trust members. Sorry, no dogs allowed.

9.30am from main KL car park - Third Monday of each month. As usual, there is no walk in December.
