Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Penny
Do get in touch and come and visit. Weekdays are best as our weekends are always booked, but any time of the day or evening after work is fine. Our tour takes about 90 minutes, come to Reading station and a black cab will whisk you here in ten minutes won't believe the glorious countryside we have so close to London and Heathrow.
