Planning your visit

Exploring the Manor

There are no bright lights and labels here - part of the magic lies in happening across unlikely treasures in dark corners, finding glinting clocks next to Japanese masks next to ancient bagpipes. Our room guides are there to help with answers to questions and wind up torches.

Timed tickets for the Manor

Tickets are stamped at the Manor door with Charles Wade’s monogram

Entry to the Manor is by timed ticket: the rooms are small and packed full of treasures, and we’d like you to enjoy them without feeling crowded.

Tickets are issued on a first-come, first-served basis, available from reception. Tickets cannot be booked in advance. Please be aware that tickets may sell out from early afternoon during school holidays and at weekends. On Bank Holidays tickets are likely to sell out from lunchtime.

There may be a wait to enter the Manor on busy days but there is plenty to explore first in the Priest's House, garden and Turquoise Cellar.
