Climb the staircase
Climb the magnificent staircase built of oak and elm. It's an impressive example of 17th-century skilled craftsmanship. On the way, admire the family portraits and hunting trophies of Elizabeth of Bohemia. Every picture tells a story.
View from the cupola
Inside the cupola or out on the roof, take in the view over three counties. The view is still undisturbed by development nearly 350 years on.
Stroll around the grounds
Using an information card available from visitor reception, take a self-guided stroll around the grounds. Be sure to look out for the parterre, Balleroy ponies and Alfred's Castle.
Walk through the tranquil woodland and look for birds and animals. Are there any deer hiding? There are three herds on the estate: muntjac, roe and fallow.
After visiting Ashdown House and grounds, why not explore the woods. Did you know that some our woodland is older than the house?
