Behind the Scenes Guided Tour

State Room

See spaces not normally open to visitors on a Behind the Scenes Guided Tour. Tours vary throughout the day so each time you might see different aspects of Petworth. From the private bedrooms of Petworth House to the tunnels that run beneath the Servants' Quarters there are plenty of aspects of Petworth that go unnoticed

On a Bedrooms tour see some of the private rooms of the house still used by Lord and Lady Egremont and their guests. See the State Bed, one of the finest examples of Rococo design in the country.

On an Ice House and Tunnels tour delve beneath the Servants' Quarters and explore the tunnel that runs underneath the courtyard that servants would have used to ferry food from the kitchen to the dining room. See the Ice House that was built in 1784 to store ice in order to preserve food for longer.

Tours run on a first come, first serve basis and are subject to availability. The bedrooms are open by the kind permission of Lord and Lady Egremont and we ask that visitors refrain from any photography in these rooms.
