An historical Wisbech attraction is opening early again this year to give people a chance to see it in its winter glory.

It’s deep cleaning time at Peckover House, when a thorough cleansing and conservation of the house and its historical gems takes place, but also a time when the garden is at its most peaceful, when visitors can catch a glimpse of the first signs of the coming spring.

The garden, tea room and shop opens to the public from this weekend, with talks also being held inside the house.

“There is always plenty going on at Peckover during the winter,” said house steward Carole French,“and we’d like to give visitors an opportunity to see the sort of conservation work we do. I am very pleased to be continuing the talks in the house this year.”

Every weekend from this Saturday to Sunday, February 22, the garden, tea room and shop will be open from noon to last admission at 3.30pm. There will also be two talks in the house, at 1.30pm and 3pm. Booking for these is strongly advisable, as numbers are limited.

Admission is free for National Trust members, with the normal garden entrance fee applicable otherwise.
