Fungus Conservation Trust walk

About

Join Michael Jordan, author and chairman of the Fungus Conservation Trust (formerly the Association of British Fungal Groups), for a fun and informative walk through the gardens to discover and identify the many different types of mushrooms and toadstools to be found at Hestercombe.

This is an informative walk and investigation into local fungi, rather than a hunt for edible mushrooms to pick and take home. Please pick mushrooms sparingly!

Prices
Adults: £10
Children: £5

Non-members must also purchase half-price gardens admission, which gets you access to the 50 acres of gardens, house and gallery all day (free for Hestercombe members and children under 5).

Tickets are available on the Hestercombe website.
