The three floors of the magnificent Gunby Hall will also be open for members of the public to explore, or visitors can relax with a hot drink and a slice of cake in the tea rooms.

Astrid Gatenby, Visitor Experience at Gunby Hall, said: “Rose Day always marks that summer is really here.

“The gardens are filled with the lovely fragrance and colours of the many roses.

“Visitors love seeing the roses on display in jars in the stables and chat about which ones they would like to grow in their own gardens.
