Sir Paul Getty spent 25 years assembling one of the finest private collections of books and manuscripts in the world. When he moved to Wormsley, just 15 minute drive from Belmond Le Manoir, he commissioned the building of the castellated Library, as an extension of the main house. The growing collection features the first edition of Caxton’s printing of The Canterbury Tales, Anne Boleyn’s Psalter and the first folio of Shakespeare’s “Comedies, Histories and Tragedies”. Other highlights include manuscripts dating from the 12th to the 15th Century, important Bibles and extraordinary modern bindings. We are invited to a rare viewing of this renowned collection with a curated tour of this historic location. We will also explore the enchanting walled gardens which date back to the mid 1700s. We will then return to Belmond Le Manoir where we will sip Champagne as the sun goes down and enjoy a feast of summer dishes for dinner. INCLUDES: Tea, coffee and lemon cake, transfer to Wormsley Estate and exclusive viewing of the Getty family private collection, hosted tour of the walled garden, champagne reception, 4-course dinner with sommelier paired wines, coffee and petits fours.
