A picture paints 1000 words
This summer we're revealing the hidden stories behind some of the paintings and photographs in our collection with special displays and artefacts from the archives. Discover our 1000 words exhibition in the mansion, and the stories our images tell - from dramatic love stories to tales of the Grand Tour.
Walks and Wanders
This month we're revealing the secrets of the estate's plants and herbs with walks to discover more about these medicinal plants. Meet our experts on a medicinal plants walk on Sunday 17 August and a healing herbs tour on Sunday 24 August. There's also the chance to step off the beaten track with our four mile beat the bounds walk on Sunday 31 August.
Step behind the scenes
There's a lot of work to do to rescue and restore the beautiful John Nash roof in our Picture Gallery, and we're inviting you to step up on our scaffold to see the work we need to carry out on our new scaffold tours. To experience this once-a-lifetime opportunity to get up close to the conservation work happening right now at high level, please book onto a tour in the Entrance Hall of the mansion. Tours are limited and run until October, and we recommend you check if tours are on by calling 01743 708154 on the day.
