Come and have a tour of our Chair Orchard


Private Tour of the Chair Orchard

£300 for up to 4 people with a deposit of £50

A personal  2 hour  introduction to the Chair Orchard with Alice, Gavin and Lina-the-whippet if you like (or not if you’re not keen on dogs)

 Pick up from Cromford or Derby railway stations or local transport point on request.








Come visit us in glorious Wirksworth, the historic market town known as “the Gem of the Peak”.

Situated near the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Derwent Valley, this is an area steeped in history, and surrounded by beautiful countryside.

While we’d love to have everyone to visit the Furniture Orchard for free all the time, we need to take time to actually get a little bit of chair growing done.

We have selected a few dates in which paying guests can explore the ideas & ethos of grown furniture, plus see chairs growing, & even get to sit in a grown chair! We may add new dates, but these first 36 tickets are so far all the tours that are currently planned.

We have based the tours on the new social distancing guidelines, but should the Covid 19 situation change significantly from this time (Sept 2020), we may make changes to these, or have to postpone or reschedule.
