How to hire a BSL tour tablet

BSL tours are available to hire during the house opening hours. You can pick up a tablet from the team at the house when you arrive. The tour takes approximately 30 minutes, but your hire can last up to 2 hours allowing  you to enjoy the house at your own pace.


BSL tour hire is free, however normal National Trust admission charges apply. You, or someone accompanying you, will need to fill out a quick form, and leave one form of identification with us as a deposit. This will be stored securely and returned when you’re done with your tour. 


We recommend that you contact us in advance to make a booking by either calling 01392 881345 or by email killerton@nationaltrust.org.uk
