Please find attached details of the forthcoming Heritage Open Day timed guided tours on Saturday and Sunday 12th and 13th of September 2015 organised by Friends of Woking Palace as part of their HLF funded 3 year project “Woking Palace and its Park.
I’m also enclosing an image of a previous tour that shows how members of the public may see the open trenches as these tours take place during this seasons excavations

Special Guided Tours at Woking Palace to celebrate Heritage Open Days on 12th and 13th September
This year Heritage Open Days coincide with the final archaeological excavations at Woking Palace and the Friends of Woking Palace are therefore arranging a very different celebration.
As part of their Heritage Lottery Funded project “Woking Palace and its Park” the Friends of Woking Palace are offering Special Pre-booked Guided Tours for a limited number of people to see the trenches and finds while excavations are in progress at 10.30am and 1.00pm on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th September. Hoe Bridge School will be providing a mini bus shuttle service from the school to Woking Palace for these special tours and therefore parking will be available in designated areas at the school.
Tickets are free – but booking is essential
