School and group visits to Montacute House
From its golden exterior to the longest Long Gallery in Britain, Montacute House is a beacon of Elizabethan flamboyance. There’s so much for groups to see, from samplers worked by little fingers, wibbly wobbly hedges, period portraits, and acres of parkland to explore.
Visiting Montacute House as a group
There’s plenty of room to spread out at Montacute House and you could easily spend a whole day. However, don’t forget Barrington Court, Lytes Cary and Tintinhull Gardens are close by and, with easy access from the A303, can be the perfect combination to visit.
Whether your interests are architecture or gardens, domestic interiors or faces from the past, you will find plenty to enthral.
Especially for groups (15+ people):
- Reduced admission price to house and garden
- Free coach parking
Self-led school groups are welcome at Montacute House. Please contact us and we'll be able to advise you of the resources available for schools, home learning, parents, carers or anyone who might find it useful. The resources can be used in the classroom, at home or for a pre-booked, self-led site visit. It is aimed at KS2 + KS3 learners but you can easily adapt the information for different learning stages, abilities and needs.
