Not to be missed is an open day at Taplow Court. You can experience the grounds and house of the neo Gothic mansion with is main hall in a curious but lovely Romanesque style.
Outside are gardens of wild flowers and well-tended herbaceous beds.
Taplow Court is the home of SGI-UK, a lay Buddhist society dedicated to working for a more peaceful and harmonious world. This must explain way the place; people and visitors have such an aura of happiness and warmth. Everyone is smiling and friendly, a counter point to the pervasive anger of South Buckinghamshire.
On these open days (2 – 5pm) you can enjoy the grounds, which look south to Windsor and tumble down to the Thames to the immediate west. Don’t miss a guided tour of the house and insights into the history of the place.
We enjoyed peaceful afternoon of discoveries and a cream tea.
