Dinner with a View
Take advantage of this unique opportunity to enjoy dinner by the Brandywine and a guided walking tour through Hagley’s gardens. Admission is $35 per person for nonmembers and $25 per person for members. Admission includes a boxed dinner prepared by the Belin House Organic Café, wine, beer, or a soft drink, and Hagley’s “’What’s for Dinner?’ A Tale of Two Gardens” walking tour. The tour will dig into two very different gardens – one that fed the du Pont family and the other DuPont Company workers in the nineteenth century. This tour explores the socioeconomic factors influencing the architecture, produce, and the philosophies of each garden. Tour involves walking on uneven ground.
The walking tour will start at the Hagley Museum Visitor Center. Guests will be asked to choose from the dinner menu prior to the event.
The Hagley Store will remain open until 9 p.m. for visitors to make purchases before they leave.
