The Sun Clock at Anglesey Abbey

Anglesey Abbey is famous for its collection of English and French clocks.

It takes around two hours a week to wind-up the thirty six clocks which are on display.



The Lower and Upper Galleries house the majority of the works of art collected by Lord Fairhaven.

His interest in Windsor Castle shows in the vast number of paintings he collected of this subject.



Christened in a punch bowl?

As an avid collector of silverware, Lord Fairhaven placed pieces throughout the house.

Special highlights include a chest in the Upper Gallery and the silver service in the Dining Room.


Visit the House

The House is open Weds - Sun, 11am - 4pm, (last entry 3pm) for general viewing and on Tuesdays for guided tours from 11.30am -3pm.

Tickets for tours are available when you arrive in Visitor Reception.

Conserving the Newmarket Corridor

We are currently nearing the completion of a major project to conserve the Newmarket Corridor, which includes Lord Fairhaven's bed and bathroom, and the bedroom where HRH The Queen Mother stayed when she visited Anglesey Abbey.

The rooms will re-open for public viewing in late spring

Pagoda Clock returns

Anglesey Abbey's magnificent Pagoda Clock has returned after ground breaking conservation lasting almost three years.

Made by James Cox, in the early 1770's, the Pagoda Clock yielded clues to an illustrious past during its conservation.
