The day features live jazz music, a duck race on the River Piddle, tours of the Elizabethan House and its award winning gardens, trade stands, a grand tombola and a Name the Dog Competition. There will also be an award for the ‘Car of the Day’ as chosen by visitors. Athelhampton has its own restaurant which serves a Sunday Roast and cream teas.
