Summer at Mompesson House

Playing croquet in Mompesson's garden

There are opportunities to play and relax at Mompesson House this summer.

Toys and games

There's fun for all the family with a variety of traditional outdoor games on the lawn including our favourite foam croquet set. As we're celebrating the 40th anniversary of Mompesson House opening to the public this year, there are also some toys that were popular in the 1970s such as spacehoppers. The toys and games available to play every day will be dependent on the weather. We're also continuing our family exploration trail in the house so on rainy days there'll still be something to do.

Eat and shop

The garden tea-room is the perfect place for morning coffee, a light lunch or afternoon tea away from the hustle and bustle of Salisbury city centre. We also have delicious tubs of ice cream from Purbeck Ice Cream. To round off your visit, why not pop into our new shop with its unique 1950s décor. There'll be regular tastings and offers throughout the summer.
