Discover the house

The house at Nuffield Place typifies early 20th-century taste and thrift; revealing the home life of Lord and Lady Nuffield. Even with a fortune behind them, they still enjoyed the simpler things in life. Their home and personal possessions are just as they left them, giving visitors a true experience of how they would have lived their lives.

Photography in the house

Visitors can take photographs in the house, but please don’t use flash. This is so that the collection can be preserved better, and prevents light damage to fabrics.

Visitors who can’t access the upstairs

For visitors who are not able to climb the stairs, we have a book of photographs of the upstairs rooms which you are welcome to sit and look through. This helps give you a glimpse of what the house is like upstairs.
