Discovery centre

Enjoy getting creative in the discovery centre

Our discovery centre for families is open during the school holidays, 11am-4pm. Inside you can stop and enjoy arts and crafts, pick up a trail or two for the woods and learn more about the Victorians and life at Killerton during the war.

Family recommended

In 2013 Primary Times readers awarded Killerton 'best family visit for a heritage attraction' for the second year in a row. Any ideas on how we can keep on improving? Let us know.
