A place for everyone

Over our history, and with your help, we've acquired a wide range of fascinating, and often surprising places that you can visit and enjoy. From the humble Alfriston Clergy House (our first house) to the grand houses of Edwardian socialites such as Polesden Lacey, by way of curious caves, countryside, lighthouses, pubs, beaches, abbeys and castles.

Discover the wealth of our collections - from great art treasures and working steam engines, to dolls houses and chamber pots, and all the weird and wonderful in between.
