On Saturday, June 15, annual ‘Bee Day’, the National Trust team at Mompesson House in Salisbury’s Cathedral Close is welcoming Salisbury and District Beekeepers Association, a group of hobbyist beekeepers who meet regularly.
“Bee Day is a great opportunity for visitors to meet local beekeepers, see working bees in their hive and find out more about these fascinating creatures,” said Emma James, Visitor Experience Officer at Mompesson House.
“Honey-tasting and bee-friendly plants in Mompesson’s beautiful garden could inspire more keepers and encourage bees into private gardens, Emma added.
Mompesson House is a homely and welcoming 18th-century townhouse in Salisbury’s Cathedral Close. The garden is an oasis of calm away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, where the garden tea-room sells light bites, teas, coffees and locally-baked cakes. The house, garden, tea-room and shop are open every day until November 3, 11am – 5pm, with last entry at 4.30pm.
Bee Day is on Saturday, June 15, 11am to 4.30pm. Normal admission charges apply.
