Historic Houses & Castles

Welcome to our Historic Houses & Castles page!

Peacocks strut across manicured lawns, children shriek with delight as they try to find their way out of fiendishly difficult mazes, and well-kept gardens dazzle year-round at many historic houses and well-preserved castles.

Once inside, enthusiastic curators bring history to life with their expert knowledge and often funny insights into the lives, loves, and artefacts of generations of inhabitants..

Just don’t forget to retrieve your children from that maze before you head home and remember it was A Grand Day Out!
