Early entry

As part of our Festival of Blossom celebrations, we are offering free early entry to Mompesson House for those who require a quieter environment. Early entry starts half an hour before opening times.

  • Booking essential
  • Free event

There are ten spaces free for those who need a quieter environment to be able to enjoy themselves and one or two adults who are accompanying them.

Mompesson House will be open half an hour earlier than usual, with volunteers stationed in two to three of our rooms happy to answer any questions you may have.

Early entry is limited to the house, garden, toilets and bookshop. The tea-room will be open from 11 when regular opening hours apply to the house.
