From 1st of March, the fountain will be on three times daily for 15mins, at: 12 noon, 1.30pm and 3pm.
We have a range of events in the diary as well as attractions in the garden to make your visit a great day out for all the family. Walk in the footsteps of the monks and step back in time with a range of habits to try on in the house for all ages. Combining wide-open lawns and vistas with informal meandering pathways, there is space and freedom for everyone to enjoy being outside.
