What's on midweek at Mottisfont
If you'd prefer to avoid the crowds, we recommend a weekday visit to Mottisfont. Enjoy our exhibitions in your own time, soak up eight centuries of history in the house or take a peaceful stroll along riverside pathways.
We’re open every day from 10am-5pm; the house and gallery open at 11am. Weekends, especially Sundays, tend to be our busiest days. You'll get more peace and quiet if you visit on a weekday, outside of school holidays.
Things to see and do
Take a look at our current exhibition:
Find out more about our house and history:
Visit the lower ground floor of the house to find out how and why Mottisfont developed from a priory into a country home over the years. From here you can step into the vaulted cellarium, the giant ‘larder’ of the 13th-century priory.
Take a stroll around the grounds:
A mid-week visit is perfect for a stroll around the grounds at your own pace. Take in the beauty of our ancient trees, the peace of the secretive walled gardens, and walk alongside the crystal-clear river.
There are picnic benches and garden seats dotted around the grounds if you want to pause and admire the views.
You can wander at will, or try one of our daily walks and talks, led by a friendly team of volunteer guides.
