On Sunday, Gunby Estate, Hall and Gardens are opening their doors all in the name of charity.

Gunby Hall is one of many National Trust properties belonging to National Gardens Scheme, giving profits to charitable organisations.

The National Gardens Scheme was founded in 1927, and since then has donated more than £45million to its nominated beneficiaries and partners. Gunby visitor experience manager Astrid Gatenby said: “Gunby has supported National Gardens Scheme since its founding in 1927, and are proud to still be doing so today, almost 90 years later.”

On Sunday, there will be plant stalls, craft and trade stands and all three floors of the house will be open for visitors to explore the long history behind Gunby House and its estate.

Ms Gatenby added: “Bring a picnic and make a day of it. Dogs on leads are welcome, too.”

Admission to the gardens is £6 on Sunday and includes free entry to the house and a guided walk, with all proceeds going to National Gardens Scheme. Free for National Trust Members and children under 5. Search Gunby Estate, Hall and Gardens for more information.
