As a charity, we need to raise over £1 million every year – 75% of our annual costs. Our vibrant events programme generates crucial revenue, making a vital contribution towards these core costs and ensuring that we can keep the gates open from dawn to dusk, all year-round.

As always, we have an exciting year of events ahead, many of which are available for our community to attend, which means that there will be occasional closures of the House and parts of the gardens. Whatever the event, we never close the whole gardens and there will always be large areas open for everyone to enjoy.  Please take a look at this page to plan your visit.

Kitchen Garden
The Kitchen Garden will remain open to the public during all our planned events.  Entry is free.
Open until 27 October.

Occasionally is it necessary for us to alter our opening times in order to complete essential works.  Please note that we will be performing essential tree maintenance work on Wednesday 1 May and Wednesday 15 May 2024 and that as a result, we will open our gates slightly later than usual at 0830.  We thank you for your understanding as we continue to work to keep the gardens beautiful and safe for visitors.
