Dear Future: I Leave This Place For You - Nostell

Learn more about how a gift in your will could help us carry out crucial conservation work at Nostell Priory.

  • Booking essential
  • Free event

Without gifts in wills, we simply wouldn’t be able to look after the extraordinary places in our care. This special event will take you behind the scenes to see first-hand how your support is helping us carry out crucial conservation work every day, and how a gift in your own will could help to safeguard the future of our special places.

Join members of our expert team at Nostell, a Georgian house filled with treasures such as our globally-renowned dolls' house by Robert Adam, one of the first long case clocks made by John Harrison and a world-class collection of Chippendale furniture. Take a tour of the house and gardens with a member of our specialist team. A local solicitor will talk about the importance of having an up to date will and we'll share information about our free will writing service. Then, over light refreshments, you'll have the opportunity to chat further and learn more about why gifts in wills are so important to our work.
