Visit Glyndebourne and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Glyndebourne, East Sussex, has become renowned for its music and opera festivals, instituted by the late John Christie in 1934. Christie, a former science master at Eton and a lover of opera, devised the idea of having presentations of first-class opera at his ancestral home, and had built on to it an opera house harmonizing perfectly with the existing house. World-famous singers and conductors appear here every summer.
A feature is the supper interval, which usually lasts for 75 minutes, when patrons take supper on the wide lawns, picnic-style; this they can bring themselves or obtain from a buffet. A full dinner is also obtainable from the dining-room. The gardens are magnificent. A wide variety of trees and shrubs grow, including yews and some fine oaks.
