RHS Members


We open to RHS members due to the generosity of the owners who wish to support the worthwhile nature of the RHS aims, and receive no financial contribution for providing free entry to RHS members. The owners receive no public subsidy for opening and rely on income from visitors to maintain the fabric of this historic building for future generations of visitors to enjoy and ensure it is maintained as part of England's great heritage.

This free entry is available to the one asterixed named cardholder only during our open season and doesn't include access to certain events. See the current RHS membership handbook for details. It will only be applicable to adult members and due to the value and nature of a group booking is not applicable to groups.
Under 5 year olds are charged at £5 each when accompanied by an RHS adult.

English Heritage Members


English Heritage members receive complimentary house entry upgrade upon presentation of their EH membership card when purchasing a ‘Gardens & Grounds Only’ ticket.
