Join the Friends of Portsmouth Cathedral on the all-day visit to this wonderful National Trust property close to the village of Sherborne St John. The Vyne is a former Tudor palace which was visited by King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn. Recently reopened after a £5.4m major restoration, it now tells the story of a Victorian brother and sister who saved the mansion. You can explore newly presented spaces with collections inspired by intimate 19th century watercolours and personal family memories. In the chapel you can hear a Tudor mass soundscape. There are also beautiful gardens with a number of interesting features and extensive grounds with lovely walks. The Vyne has good facilities for refreshments and a light lunch. The visit is open to all Friends, Cathedral Guides and members of FOOPA, and please brings your friends as well. Entrance to The Vyne for members of the National Trust is free, for non-members is £11.
