TOUR the gardens of the Fonthill Estate near Salisbury.

Lord Margadale and his family are opening their gates tomorrow (Sunday, June 12) to raise money for MYTIME Young Carers.

The open garden at Fonthill House, Tisbury, will run from 12pm to 5pm.

There will be refreshments available, stalls and live entertainment including a performance from soprano Poppy Neame.

Fonthill Estate is a historic, period property surrounded by formal gardens, a working kitchen garden and a wild woodland area.

Salisbury Journal:

The estate also features a lake and an expansive deer park, although this is now mainly home to a flock of grazing sheep.

Usually, the gardens are a private sanctuary for Lord Margadale and his family, but people from near and far come to see the estate when the family host charity open days.

Penelope Day, of MYTIME Young Carers, said: ‘We are so excited to have been chosen as this year’s national charity for the Fonthill Estate Open Garden.

"We know how much people look forward to the event and how many people come every year, so we think it’s going to be a brilliant opportunity for us to raise awareness about the young people we support and the responsibilities they take on to care for family members who need them.”

Entrance is £10 per person via Eventbrite or £12 on the gate. Children go free.
