Exploring the house at The Vyne

As the house comes to the end of its transformation after a £5.4m roof project, we’re shining a spotlight on some intriguing stories. Find out about the visit of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, and discover how a Victorian family saved The Vyne from destruction. Please bear with us whilst we re display the house which will be fully open in September.

Our work

One of The Vyne's tapestries is carefully rolled ahead of three years of conservation.

The Vyne tapestries appeal 

Historic repairs have begun to fail and the backings have warped, putting strain on the fragile fabric of six eighteenth-century ‘chinoiserie’ tapestries. Your gift today can help rescue the legacy of John Vanderbank, the greatest tapestry weaver of his time.
