Discover more about the man behind the collection on our early bird tour of the house. Whilst the house wakes up for the day ahead, discover Lord Fairhaven's country home through a guided tour at this special time of day.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
Focussing on the life and lifestyle of the 1st Lord Fairhaven, discover how he went from son of an oil heiress, to a retired officer with the First Life Guards looking to purchase a property close to the family owned stud in Great Barton, near Bury St Edmunds. Find out about the history of this 13th century priory, Lord Fairhaven’s fascination and collection of Windsor paintings, and the fastidious way he ran his household.

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
- Standard Admission
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.
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:
|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 Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
If arriving by cycle, on foot or public transport, please enquire about our green ticket.
Please note that we now only offer a whole site admission ticket only. When you buy your admission ticket you're directly supporting our vital conservation work here at Anglesey Abbey.
