Avebury Manor reopens from 14 February

A day out with a difference

Avebury Manor was the subject of a unique collaboration with the BBC. The lives and stories of the house's many owners were brought to life by the use of interior design, including the creation of many new pieces.

As we are now in the quieter part of the year there is no need to book tickets in advance to see the house.

Come and play

Relax with a book in the armchairs, have a game or two in the Billiards Room, or even try out the four-poster beds for size.

This groundbreaking project now means that many rooms have been furnished and the house has become a vibrant place where you can enjoy a journey through time.

Voices from the past revealed

Adieu my dearest love... voices from Avebury Manor

14 February - 27 March, no extra charge

Past owner's lives and loves are revealed through a display of excerpts from their letters, diaries and wills.
 

The garden in springtime

This is a lovely time to see the garden

The main part of the Manor garden opens on 1 March, including our apple orchard.

Before then you can still see the Topiary Garden, where the hedge design echoes the ornate Tudor Parlour ceiling.

New arrival in the bedroom

 The Tudor Bedroom is now complete with a new hand made rush mat which smells wonderful and brings warmth and colour to this cosy room.
