CB300 - Guidance for visitors

Please find here a useful guide for all visitors planning a trip to Milton Abbey this summer as part of the Capability Brown celebrations.

Milton Abbey and the Diocese of Salisbury will be co-hosting a CB300 Exhibition in the Abbey and on the school site from 10 July to 21 August to commemorate the tercentenary of Capability Brown.  The event will include an exhibition in the Abbey, a gallery exhibition and film/video presentation in two school buildings, and the opportunity for walks in the Capability Brown landscape.  Admission is £6 for adults, £5 for concessions and U16s free, and will be collected by stewards in the Abbey.

Guidance when on-site

Although the event takes place during the school summer holiday, visitors should be aware that Milton Abbey School hosts weddings, a Music Festival and various visiting groups during this period and CB300/Abbey visitors will have limited access to the main school site.  A map showing the areas of access for CB300/Abbey visitors is shown below and copies will be available on arrival at the School.

Picnics may be consumed in the designated area.  Milton Abbey is a no smoking site and operates a strict dog policy - dogs must be kept on a lead and waste place in the appropriate receptacles.  Please respect the No Access signs around the site.  Public toilets are available on site and are identified on the map.  Car parking for CB300 and Abbey visitors will be on Damer Green just to the left of the main entrance to the school.  Coach parking is by appointment only.
