Scott's Grotto is a series of interconnected chambers, extending some 67ft into the chalk hillside just outside the market town of Ware. The chambers and tunnels are lined with shells, flints and pieces of coloured glass. It was constructed by the poet and quaker John Scott in the 1700s. On top of the hill above the tunnels there is a summer house which would have commanded a wonderful view over the town of Ware when it was first built.
The grotto is open 1400-1630 on each Saturday and Bank Holiday Monday between April 1st and September 28th. There is no need to book and entrance is free, but a suggested donation of £1 would be appreciated.
