The opening of Leith Hill Place
26 July – 3 November
Friday – Monday, 11am – 5pm
Leith Hill Place opens to the public this summer and autumn from 26 July.
You will be able to sit and relax in the drop-in space, enjoy the glorious views and chat about how you'd like to see the house used in the future. Enjoy a programme of music, art and science activities and tours of the attics and cellar.
When you visit, you’ll see a house in transition. It’s not the finished article, but it's the chance to see what’s going on behind the scenes at a crucial stage in shaping the house's future.
An imposing house with stunning views over the South Downs, Leith Hill Place was once home to the Wedgwood family and composer Ralph Vaughan Williams, and visited frequently by Charles Darwin.
This is an important moment in the history of Leith Hill Place, when we can begin to tell the stories of the well-known people associated with it. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit and see for yourself.
