|Gunnersbury Park Museum Reopens|
An impressive large mansion refurbishment set in the most beautiful park grounds
Gunnersbury Park's refurbished Museum reopened at the weekend (23/24/06) with free activities for all to enjoy.
The sun shone and the museum and park grounds were busy with a huge array of activities going on.
The 'in character' actors played their roles in the Victorian kitchen and Princess Amelia's bathhouse brilliantly, providing much education and entertainment for children and adults alike.
Visitors also got a rare treat - the opportunity to take a look inside the gothic bath house - it's normally closed to the public -which was used by Amelia - George ll's daughter from around the 1760's.
The gardens tour by Park Manager, Chris Ellis, took us to parts of these vast grounds I had never been before and was fascinating, hugely informative, and made me appreciate just how stunning Gunnersbury Park really is.
Overall, it was a wonderful day out, a lot of time and money has obviously gone into this restoration and many dedicated people have worked very hard. We are very lucky to have such a beautiful park so close by.
Go and visit it soon!
And, if you want to learn all about the history of Gunnersbury, The Ealing Civic Society John Delafons lecture is taking place on Tuesday 3rd July at Ealing Green Church.
