Call in at the Plant Centre on your way in
The Plant Centre is looking bright and well stocked with more plants arriving every week.
The fritillaries are in bloom, looking wonderful in the warm spring sunshine. Along with the daffodils and tulips they bring a wash of spring colour as you head for the House and Gardens.
New stock for spring
Come and see the new season's range at Upton's shop.
The amazing selection of new handbags and scarves is irresistible.
Looking for a gift? Our tableware and note cards, designed by Alex Clark, feature beautiful illustrations of British birds. The pretty mugs are everyone's favourite, perfect for an enjoyable cuppa on a sunny afternoon.
A hidden gem: the used bookstore
Can't resist a browse? Upton's second-hand bookstore is just off the corner of the Old Kitchen. Whether it's a £1 paperback or a £1,000 collector's item you'll find something to grab your attention.
A very special reading list
We have a special collection of more valuable second-hand books. You'll find a catalogue listing them in the bookshop or you can download the list.
Books about paintings and painters
Our exhibitions and permanent collection are a great inspiration to find out more. We have a wonderful collection of art books in the shop, from how to read a painting to books about individual artists.
