Guided tours of the Wentworth Woodhouse gardens have sprung into life again.

The Rotherham stately home has been welcoming visitors to its gardens since July 4.

Now there are two fascinating experiences to choose from which have been re-launched following Government Covid-19 guidelines. Each enables visitors to learn about the history of the gardens and how they came to be, and discover the huge effort to restore them.
