Your visit

Opening times

The house and grounds are open each week Wednesday to Sunday. Check our online booking calendar before visiting as opening times vary. Entry to the house is by timed tickets, advance booking essential for all visitors at Christmas, and during busy bank holidays and school holidays.

We are disappointed to report that our new booking system is being held up by our payment provider and we are still unable to take payments for bookings. Bookings for free timed tickets for house visits can be made by National Trust, Art Fund or RHS members booking online here >

We are working hard to resolve this, in the meantime please accept our apologies; we appreciate your patience.
