The magnificent Cowdray Heritage Ruins are set in the stunning landscape of Cowdray Park.
The Cowdray Heritage Ruins are one of England’s most important early Tudor houses and Cowdray is known to have been visited by both King Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I. In September 1793, whilst undergoing repairs and refurbishments for the impending marriage of the 8th Viscount Montague, a devastating fire took hold and most of the property was destroyed. The Kitchen Tower is the only part of the mansion to remain intact.
Cowdray Ruins is currently closed for general visits, however, we look forward to welcoming you to one of our Heritage Events or guided tours. Please check here for the latest information and events taking place in 2023. These events allow an unexpected peek into life as a Tudor on the Cowdray Estate and provide entertainment for the whole family.
