What's on?

This summer two fantastic outdoor theatre performances are coming to the grounds of Bradley - Twelfth Night and Robin Hood. Bring a picnic and some low-backed seating, and settle down for great shows.

Don't miss

  • The great fireplace built of three slabs of Dartmoor granite
  • The roof carvings in the chapel
  • A surviving part of the Tudor Royal Arms in the hall
  • The 15th-century cat hole
  • Two outdoor theatre performances this summer
  • The photo album filled with interesting pictures in the Great Hall
  • The two Burne-Jones drawings upstairs in the bedroom


There's plenty to keep children entertained, from roaming the garden to hunting for the medieval cat hole in the house.

Photo art project

Last year pupils from Bradley Barton Primary School visited Bradley for a special photo shoot of unusual and inspirational architectural features of the house's exterior. The children learnt about camera angles, close ups and panoramic views amongst other skills, under the expert guidance of professional artist Kate Green. Their work has now been transformed into a commemorative art book of digitally enhanced images and words.
