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 open from Saturday 30th April – Sunday 4th September 2016 (11am-4pm last entries 3pm), on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays. Various events will be taking place during the summer season.
Renaissance Art Studio in the Tower Room at Cowdray Heritage
In recent months 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.
