Scotts Grotto

You may be surprised to learn that tucked away in a street of modern houses in Ware is the country's largest grotto. Most examples of these eighteenth century garden buildings are in the grounds of stately homes and several are presently the subject of restoration programmes. Scott's Grotto was restored in 1990 by the Ware Society on behalf of the owners, East herts District Council.

It is open to the public from 2.00pm - 4.30 pm every Saturday and Bank Holiday from April to September inclusive. Parties can also be shown round at other times by appointment with the Warden on 01920 464131. Entrance is free but a donation of £1.00 is suggested from new visitors. It is advisable to wear flat shoes and to bring a torch.

For more information on Scotts Grotto it is advised that you visit the Grotto's web site created by Peter Watson. www.scotts-grotto.org

You can also view a film about Scotts Grotto, shot in 1994.
