Please park in the visitor car park and then use the shuttle bus up to the Manor Restaurant.
Have an adventure in the gardens
Our gardens are a great place for creating adventures of your own. With just a little bit of imagination you can have so much fun. Is that a dinosaur I see peeking out of the bushes?, quick run and hide. All the statues covered like ghosts are coming to life, let's go and ask them what it's like to stand still for so long?
Have you seen our beautiful Rococo aviary with its exotic residents, some of which are endangered? Aviaries were often seen in Rothschild gardens, but this is the only one that can still be seen today. Historically it used to house mainly parrots but today you'll see colourful pigeons, doves, pheasants, barbets and touracos.
Open every day Saturday 16 - Sunday 24 February
