Summer adventures at The Vyne  

Families are in for a treat this year as a lift-accessible rooftop walkway enables visitors to see a £5.4million restoration project to save The Vyne’s roof. Young adventurers can speak to our workmen as they carry out repairs, see views of the grounds and even leave their mark on The Vyne by sponsoring and signing a roof tile. Picnics, woodland exploration and self-led activities await those that head outdoors. Inside the house, you can step back in time to the visit of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn in 1535. On select dates enjoy children’s outdoor theatre or meet our roof project experts among other events and activities.
