Historic Cowdray

Cowdray is one of England’s most important early Tudor houses.

Visited by Queen Elizabeth I and King Henry VIII, this impressive Tudor house was partially destroyed by fire in 1793. Its magnificent ruins are set in the stunning landscape of Cowdray Park, in the heart of the South Downs National Park.

We are CLOSED until the Spring. Group visits can be arranged all year long and we will be open for a special event on Sunday 30th October – full details to be announced shortly.

Renaissance Art Studio in the Tower Room at Cowdray Heritage

Lady Cowdray, an artist and sculptress herself, has overseen the refurbishment of the Tower Room into a magnificent Renaissance Art Studio. It is an amazing ancient hexagonal space, secreted away near the top of a romantic tower. Lady Cowdray is keen for others to share her passion for art.

Artist in Residence – David Cranswick

Cowdray’s artist in-residence, David Cranswick, is running five-day workshops at The Tower Room. They are inspired by the reborn art studio with its amazing views out across the 16,500 acre of the historic West Sussex Estate.
