An ambitious roof project
A £6 million project is currently underway at Oxburgh Hall, which will see repairs carried out to the roof, windows, chimneys and medieval gatehouse facade, securing Oxburgh's future and the collection within. Our most ambitious conservation project to date, the work will take us until Winter 2021 to complete.
Please be aware that in order for us to carry out the work, a highly complex engineer-designed scaffold has been erected around Oxburgh Hall for the duration of the project.
Work continues during major roof project
We recently found pest damage to a beam above the Library. After a short closure to carry out further investigations, we're pleased to reopen the hall once again. You'll notice the Library looks a little different to normal as we've had to protect the collections while we undertake some work above the room. Find out more about how we care for the collection through a major conservation project!
There are wide, gravelled paths through the gardens. Please note there are two steep slopes which are marked on the map. Due to very uneven ground, the woodland is not wheelchair friendly. When the house is open - four rooms are open on the ground floor and are wheelchair accessible. Please note that our manual wheelchairs are currently unavailable. An accessible toilet is available in the courtyard of the house.
Notes on your visit
Please take your litter home with you. This helps us keep everyone safe.
Dogs are welcome on short leads throughout the gardens and woodland.
There will be no first aid cover from staff during your visit. If you require assistance, please let a member of staff know so they can coordinate an emergency response.
No barbeques, fires or braziers permitted on site.
For the protection of our buildings, smoking is not permitted on site.
If you’re showing any of the symptoms of coronavirus, or if you’ve been in contact with anyone that has the virus in the last 14 days, please don’t visit.
