Former Ambleside May Queens and attendants can take a nostalgic look back at what what was once a highlight of village life with old photographs in Ambleside Library.

The May Queen would be about 15 years old, accompanied by two train and crown-bearers and the annual coronation was held on a Friday in May in the Ambleside Assembly Rooms. The new Queen and attendants would be photographed in the garden at Wraysholme, Millans Park.

Old photographs of Ambleside’s Crowning Glories will be on display at Ambleside Library until mid-June, as part of Local History Month.  Ambleside Oral History archive also has interviews recounting May Queen celebrations at www.aohg.org.uk

With the first of the Spring Gardening Holidays just over 2 weeks away (May 1st - 6th 2011), we have decided to offer the last few rooms with a 10% discount off the normal rate.

Everywhere is looking lovely - so fresh and green this time of year, with the early rhododendrons and camellias coming into flower already, so for anyone with a love of gardens - this holiday is ideal.

Offering a mixture of talks and trips out to a variety of places including some gardens not normally open to the public, its a great opportunity learn more about the gardens in the local area.
