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. On fine days you can sometimes go up onto the gatehouse roof for a talk on its history and for unique views of the Warwickshire countryside.
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.
Have we got brews for you!
Following the success of our Victorian kitchen, we’re planning to bring all the outbuildings to life.
We've already got our own beer on sale in the shop and restaurant, and we're currently recruiting costumed guides to talk to you about servants' life in these buildings.
Be the first to find out what’s happening in the brewhouse, laundry and tackroom by following us on Twitter.
Who's hiding in the house? Every school holiday there's a bunch of furry friends to find.
Summer children's club
Every Thursday in August there are free activities for children. Just turn up and join in.

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.
