Meet a selection of local authors at our book signings this month

After you’ve spent an autumn day enjoying the great outdoors, why not enjoy the simple pleasure of snuggling up on the sofa to get drawn into a good book? We’ve got plenty of inspiration to help you find a favourite, and four October book signings where you can discover some up and coming local authors in our stables shop.

Rut Walks

Join our expert wardens on Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 October on a walk through the deer park at dusk to learn about our fallow deer. Additional charges apply and the walk may not be suitable for little ones as it requires long periods of quiet. Book your place now on 01743 708170.

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.

Cycle policy

Children under five years old are welcome to learn to cycle in the grounds on tricycles, training bikes without pedals, and bikes with stabilisers. Download our Cycle Policy for more information.
