Great Oak Hall guides

Author: Lorna Butcher

The Great Oak Hall is being opened up to the public for guided tours on selected days

Volunteer tour guides will be in the Great Oak Hall on weekends (subject to volunteer availability) giving visitors the chance to learn about the building’s fascinating architecture and history.

Did you know that 40 oaks from 16 private estates were donated from all over Gloucestershire to construct the crucks, and fossils within the natural stone floor date back 170 million years?

A sign at the Welcome Building will let you know when the hall is open, so why not come and see for yourself?
