Staff and Volunteers Visit Sezincote

A group of volunteers and staff from Broadway Museum & Art Gallery recently visited the wonderful house and gardens at nearby Sezincote. It proved to be a delightful and rewarding afternoon out.

Set in beautiful grounds and dating from the early nineteenth century, Sezincote House is a unique example of the architecture of the Mogul Emperor Akbar, and is thought to be the only Mogul-inspired building surviving in Western Europe.

During their visit, the group enjoyed a comprehensive tour of the house and gardens, starting with a stroll through the Orangery, with much to admire among its collection of exotic plants. This was followed by an exploration of the extensive gardens with their rich and varied plantings of trees and shrubs. They were then treated to a guided tour of the historic house, brought to life by an excellent and knowledgeable guide.

After a final look around the gardens, everybody agreed that Sezincote had been a beautiful, peaceful and inspiring place to visit, and well worth returning to in the future.

The museum is keen to ensure the volunteers gain more experiences than just those it offers. Volunteering at the Museum brings you into contact with like minded people and its fun. Why not join us.
