Gilling Castle and Spring Garden Reception
Gilling Castle in the Howardian Hills, the former home and estate of the Fairfaxes and country counterpart to Fairfax House, will be the glorious May-time setting for the Friends 2018 Garden Party. St Martin’s of Ampleforth College will be hosting this very special visit with drinks reception on the lawn, and giving behind the scenes access to this magnificent castle (parts of which date to the 14th century) including the extraordinary panelled Great Chamber. We invite you to make the most of this last opportunity to see Gilling Castle before the Junior School closes later this year. Own transport required to the castle – St Martin’s Ampleforth, YO62 4HP.
