There are hand-held audio tour-guides (included in the entry price) to talk you round the building, setting the scene of the house’s glory days by taking you back to Tudor times. The three versions of the tour: General, Specialist and Childrens, ensure the narrative can be enjoyed by all.
Picnics are welcome in the grounds on our picnic benches or on the grass in front of the building. Ice cream is on sale in the Visitor Centre. The Cowdray Farm Shop & Café are just down the road.
