UK Oak Open Days 2023

Event Date: 
Saturday, 1 July 2023 to Sunday, 2 July 2023

Oak Open Days will be held in Wales on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd July, 2023. 

The event will commence at Penrice Castle, where we will be hosted by Thomas Methuen-Campbell. This property has an incomparable position in a private valley running down to the sea, and in it exotic oaks are mingled both in garden and forest settings.

On the second day we will visit the estate of Glanusk, near Crickhowell in central Wales. The present owner, Harry Legge-Bourke, continues to enlarge the oak collection of his late father, Bill Legge-Bourke, whom some of you will remember from early IOS tours. The estate’s beautiful setting on the River Usk would be well worth a visit even without the oaks!
