We look forward to welcoming you to the gardens, house and parkland at Killerton. The Stables coffee shop, Killerton Kitchen takeaway café, second-hand bookshop, shop and plant sales are open.

You no longer need to book your visit to Killerton, we've removed the booking system - enjoy spontaneous visits once again. The mornings are a popular time to visit so if you are looking to visit at a quieter time, we recommend arriving in the afternoon.
