Get inspired for some winter colour in your own garden with a wander around our winter garden, as the snow drops and hellebores appear in January and February.  Head to the Dell and Orangery garden in late winter for a floral delight.

Come and see the house in a different light

For the first time ever, the house will be open every day throughout the winter, giving more opportunities to visit.  From January 2018, we'll be inviting you to see more of the work our skilled conservation team does.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, ask upon arrival at visitor reception to find out if there are any conservation tours on offer. We frequently run tours on these days to give visitors an insight into the work that goes on behind the sences, showing how your money is helping us to preserve the house. On Thursdays, you might even be offered the chance to explore our mysterious attics.
