There’s much to do during the festival which makes an exciting day out for the whole family. There’ll be rose planting for the kids, wine tasting and a fragrance bar where you can try to identify specific scents. Grab something to eat at the Spiced Coffee restaurant – the scones with rose jam are a must – or have a picnic among the beautiful roses.
