The home of one of the most remarkable men of the 20th century
The time-capsule home of the philanthropist William Morris, Lord Nuffield, the founder of Morris Motor Cars and one of the richest men in the world.
Lord Nuffield gave much of his wealth to good causes and his house reflects a relatively modest lifestyle. Lord and Lady Nuffield’s personal possessions remain as they left them with the decor and furnishings intact, making it a perfect example of a complete 1930s country home.
Nuffield Place has ongoing conservation work taking place. Booking is essential for groups of 15 or more – please email us for more details. Groups of 10 or more paying to tour the house will be given a discounted rate.
Smaller groups can buy house tour tickets at visitor reception upon arrival. Members can tour the house free.
House tours last approximately 1 hour. The earliest house tour starts at 11am, with tours every 15 minutes until the last tour at 4pm.
