Oxburgh Hall Summer Time Machine

Join us for a leap back in time to the medieval period with Tudor Tuesdays (every Tuesday 31 July - 4 September) and our War of the Roses Re-enactment weekend (11-12 August). Dress as a Tudor maid, a Lord or Lady of the manor, or their loyal knight. See medieval diplays of combat, archery, and even canon firing when Oxburgh turns into an army encampment for a weekend.

Or for something a little quieter, try the ancient art of scything (21 July) in the orchard.

Go Wild Outdoors

Every Wednesday in August head to the Den Building Area and discover fun ways to enjoy the woods. There's trails, bug hunting, den building, and more.

On any day of the week you can enjoy a walkaround the estate. Maybe you might see an otter, Barn owl, or deer that have made Oxburgh their home.

Beautiful gardens and fascinating history

No matter when you come there are always our stunning gardens to enjoy and the 500 year history of the house to discover.

The French Parterre and walled garden come into full bloom over August and September bringing vivid colour to the gardens.

This summer we have added to our collection in the house. See our new tapestries in a room fit for a King, and there's always the Marian Hangings stitched by Mary Queen of Scots herself.

Discover why the family was so important in medieval times, and why Catholic priests were forced to hide in the Priest Hole. Do you dare go inside?

We hope to see you this summer and that you love Oxburgh Hall as much as we do. We are a charity and every visit, purchase, or donation that you make helps us look after Oxburgh Hall for generations to come.
