Brunel Visit to Kings Weston House
Final arrangements for the Brunel Group KINGS WESTON HOUSE TRIP are as follows:
- Meeting at 11.00 am for coffee in the cafe. If you are in your TR please park at the side of the House and we will arrange when we meet up.
- A walk through Kings Weston woods. Please bring suitable footwear as it's a little muddy in places but not too bad.
- Lunch in their restaurant.
- A short tour around the House.
- This could be followed by a trip in the cars if you wish.
Kings Weston House is a Grade 1 listed building that was completed in 1719 and designed by Sir John Vanbrugh, who also designed Blenheim Palace.
The house boasts a plethora of 18th-century features, including magnificent ceilings, marble fireplaces, and a stunning suspended central staircase. It is elegant and characterful, yet retains the charm of a lived-in and loved family home.
Surrounding the house are woodlands and green fields, and free parking is available in the woodland car park. Kings Weston House is situated just 10 minutes from Bristol city centre, and a short drive from both the M4 and M5 motorways.If there is anyone else wanting to join us who wasn't at the Brunel Group meeting on Wednesday 15 March please let Elf firstname.lastname@example.org or Dave email@example.com know as soon as possible so numbers can be confirmed with the house.
