We welcome group visits to the School and Museum, so please contact the School direct to discuss your party's requirements. The museum can take 20 people at one time but it is possible to arrange for split group visits. These visits are arranged to take place privately on days when we are closed to casual visitors or outside normal opening hours, including evenings, and cost £7.50 per head (minimum charge £75).
This charge, and any donations, will be put towards the running costs of the School and a programme of conservation and repair of our collection of historic textiles and artefacts.
If your planned visit is during May, June and July you might like to visit the Wemyss Castle Gardens as well. These stunning gardens, restored by Charlotte and Michael Wemyss since 1994, within the 18th century walls, are open (by appointment only) on weekdays during May, June & July only. Entrance is £7.50 per person, children free. All dogs are welcome on a lead. The gardens are,for the most part, wheelchair friendly with WC facilities suitable for the disabled. To arrange a visit to the gardens please ring Charlotte on 01592-652181 and should you only hear the answer machine, do not leave a message but ring the caretaker Mike McFarlane on 07825-151479 and he will be happy to look after you.
If you would like to take a picnic or artist materials to the gardens and stay all day, you are very welcome to do so. The gardens are a mixture of formal and informal and notably have a large collection of bulbs, roses and above all clematis (the unofficial National Collection of Clematis Montana - at their best in May) which festoon the apple trees, walls and numerous metal structures.
It has been suggested that Wemyss Castle Gardens is "one of the horticultural wonders of Scotland".
