FREE coach parking during your visit and a further two hours FREE coach parking at Abbot Hall, to see the historic town of Kendal. Coach welcomed by a member of staff. Pre-booked catering options with reserved seating. Bookable group talks, for differing interest and knowledge levels. Early visits starting at Blackwell before we open to the general public.
