Unseen Spaces Tour
We are continuing to 'unlock' more rooms in Polesden Lacey House, guest bedrooms, corridors, & the King's suite, for everyone to enjoy. This involves structural work and extensive funding to restore the rooms and will take some years to achieve.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
The Unseen Spaces Tour will give you a preview of these spaces while the work is in progress and you will be able to see rooms that have never been open to the public before.
Tours start promptly at 2.15pm from the front of the house and will be approximately one hour in length.
Maximum 10 people per tour; please note that tickets are first come, first served on the day (tickets are not pre-bookable).

What is Gift Aid?
Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points. Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:
- Gift Aid Admission or
- Standard admission
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you the Gift Aid Admission prices. But it's entirely up to you which ticket you choose. If you want the Standard Admission instead, just let us know when you come to pay.
Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid* — an extra 25 per cent — potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below: Payment of the additional percentage donation is entirely voluntary, so if you prefer to pay the standard admission please advise our reception staff at the till point.
|Amount paid by visitor||£11.00||£10.00|
|Tax refund from Government*||£2.75||£0.00|
|Total received by the National Trust||£13.75||£10.00|
*Gift Aid donations must be supported by a valid Gift Aid declaration and a Gift Aid declaration can only cover donations made by an individual for him/herself or for him/herself and members of his/her family.
We now charge a single entry price for House and Garden admission. National Trust members and under 5s go free.
£1 restaurant voucher if arriving by public transport (present valid ticket at visitor reception).
Parking for non-members: £2 up to and including 2 hours, £5 all day.
- Unfortunately dogs are not welcome at this event.
- Meeting point
- Book your tour on the day at Visitor Reception and then meet at the well head outside the front of the house five minutes before the start of the tour.
- Please be advised that there are access issues on this tour and you will need to be able to manage walking up and down stairs.
- The Unseen Spaces tour is free but we would appreciate a small donation to help us with the cost of restoring these rooms. We suggest £2 per person.
