Summer Luncheon




"R H S Bridgewater.

  Occupation Rd, Off Leigh Rd, Manchester M28 2LJ






In February 2019, we were delighted to hear from Royston Futter and Claire Finnerty about ‘The Making of RHS Bridgewater’. We decided then to visit as soon as it was open. We can now finally make that visit.

We will meet at the Main Entrance at 11am

A limited number of Mobile Electric scooters and Wheelchairs are available to book in advance with a £5-00, refundable cash deposit to pay on the day.



The costs vary and due to complexity of organising is is requested that you send your booking either by to the email: office@manchesterluncheonclub.org and our Administrator will forward to the organiser or by letter to the club P.O. Box. Preferred payment for this trip is by BACS.

There are two costs dependant on whether you are a member of the R.H.S. or not.

RHS members and one other guest each need to pay for the Guided Tour of Walled Garden at midday, £3-00 A Guidebook may be pre booked at £2-50

None RHS members, who have not teamed up with a RHS member ,

Need to pay £11-50 each and a Guidebook may be pre booked at £2-50

Catering facilities are poor with long queues. We are all advised to take along a picnic lunch. There are lots of places to sit around the Gardens. Following the guided tour there will be free time to explore the Garden at our own pace. It is recommended that we visit the Chinese Streamside Garden which, our good friend Gerry Yeung, helped to design and support. There is also a well-stocked Garden Centre and Shop. Toilet facilities around the site are excellent.


As we are unable to sit together for a meal at the site, places are reserved at the Restaurant at Worsley Old Hall, Walkden Road, Worsley, Greater Manchester M28 2QT at 4pm. This is just a short drive from the Gardens and will be a pleasant end to the day. All diners will book meals and pay for them on the day. There is a varied menu available which changes each week and can be viewed at www.worsleyoldhall.co.uk
