Planning your visit to the house
Entry to the house is by timed ticket to help us protect the delicate building. You can pick up your ticket from the team at visitor reception when you arrive. During the week, our volunteers run two guided tours of the house each morning at 11.00 am and 11.45 am, then entrance to the house is from 12 noon by timed ticket. The last timed ticket of the day is at 3.30 pm. As the tours are run by volunteers, we can't guarantee that they will be running, so if you particularly want a tour, please call 01256 883858 to check the availability. During weekends, the house is open from 11.00 am by timed ticket and the last timed ticket of the day is at 3.30 pm. There are no tours at weekends.Ticket and tour allocation is on a first come first serve basis, so please arrive early to avoid disappointment.
Throughout the year, the house team will be undertaking preventative conservation. You will have the chance to see conservation first hand when you visit. However, this may mean that some rooms may be closed and objects may be covered whilst we work. So why not talk to the conservators as they work to find out more about our house and its conservation programme?
