Visits for Groups

Fretwork along the bedroom ceiling at 575 Wandsworth Road, London

575 Wandsworth Road is a fragile house and is only able to accept 2000 visitors per year. Nevertheless, we welcome special interest and educational group visits and can accommodate special needs. We try to keep Thursdays free for ad hoc visits. It is also sometimes possible to arrange private tours outside of our standard opening hours, though these are more expensive. Advance payment is required by cheque at least two weeks in advance of the visit.

Special interest groups

We can arrange bespoke tours tailored to the particular passions of special interest groups. We can discuss the best ways in which visits for larger groups can be staggered across the same day to ensure that everyone has the benefit of a visit, whilst respecting the space constraints of our special house.

Groups at non-standard times

We are very happy to welcome your small group of no more than six people to visit at a non-standard time, perhaps in celebration of a special event, or given as a gift, an unusual experience for those wishing to spend time with family or friends. Please contact us to see what might be possible.


The most cost-effective way for educational groups to visit is as Educational Group Members and we would be very happy to advise you further if you are not already part of the National Trust EGM scheme. We can work with you both in advance and after your visit and we have a small number of craft activities suitable for children to participate in.

Accommodating visitors with special needs

If your group has visitors special needs we will see what we can do to assist, and how we might create a visit that is suitable. Whilst due to space constrictions we can only host groups of up to six people at a time, very occasionally we may be able to accommodate one or two additional visitors if carers are required for the main participants of the group. A conversation with us is always the best starting point, so please get in touch.
