  • Booking essential

Without gifts in wills, we simply wouldn't be able to look after the extraordinary places in our care. To thank our gifts in wills supporters, this special event will take you behind the scenes to see first-hand how your support is helping us carry out crucial conservation work every day.

Meet General Manager Emma Thomas and members of our expert team as they take you on a tour of the Hall, including the Central Hall, Basement, West Wing and Stables with Siobhan Falkous (Experience & Visitor Programming Manager) and Helen Smith (Collections & House Officer). You'll also enjoy a tour of the garden with Corey Higham (Gardens & Outdoors Manager) and Andrew Weatherhead (Senior Volunteering and Community Officer), learning more about our legacy funded rose garden project.

The event will end with a cream tea and chance to hear about our future plan and ongoing conservation needs, including repairs to the Orangery roof, final corbel in the Entrance Hall, the fountain in the Parterre and improvements to physical access.
