Walks and talks

Join one of our Meet the Gardener talks and find out more

There are just-turn-up talks and tours in the house and around the park nearly every day.

Introductory talks are outside the gatehouse and costume talks are in the great hall. They're free and there's no need to book. Visitor Reception staff will let you know what's happening on your way in.

The mown paths in the parkland are flat and dry at the moment but sturdy footwear recommended if it turns wet.

What's on

Join us for behind-the-scenes events with our Park Ranger and the team. Book ahead for Deer at Dusk and Deer at Dawn.

Come along for half-term Hallowe'en Pumpkin trails.

Father Christmas has started taking bookings and we're planning the festive decorations for the house.
