Free walks and talks
Find out what's happening today when you come through Visitor Reception on your way in.
At weekends and most weekdays there’s an introductory talk outside the house, guided walks in the park and costume talks in the great hall. They are all free and there's no need to book, just turn up a few minutes before the start time.
These all depend on the availability of our knowledgeable volunteers and may not take place every day. If anything is particularly important to your visit, call ahead on 01789 470277.
Make the most of all our space this summer and play with our sports kits.
You’ll find all you need for mini tennis, cricket, rounders and Frisbees. You can make up your own games with the kit if you prefer, or bring your own. But please curb your enthusiasm near the house windows!
Drop scones and jelly bags
Talk to our costumed guides in the Victorian kitchen and find out more about what we're cooking today and all the gadgets you can see around you. Children can try on costumes and help with cooking.
The Victorian kitchen is open every day but we’re not always able to cook on Wednesdays when the rest of the house is closed.
Who's hiding in the house? Every school holiday there's a bunch of furry friends to find.
