A snapshot of the past

After a long winter the signs of Spring are starting to show, the days are getting lighter, the flowers are starting to blossom and even more exciting it’s the first Friday we have ever been open. This means we’re now open seven days a week (the house is closed on a Thursday and Friday) come and visit us for an unforgettable experience and join one of our snapshot tours.

These exclusive new tours, only available on a Thursday or Friday offer the opportunity to see different areas of the Petworth estate; some not normally open to visitors. You could find yourself climbing the staircase to venture into the rarely seen attic rooms, last used as servants’ bedrooms or exploring the history of the Pleasure Grounds (you may even spot Samuel the spaniel taking a stroll in the park!). Our dedicated team of volunteers will take you on a journey of discovery.

All tours are 45 minutes long and are allocated on a first come first served basis. Tickets for afternoon tours will be released at 1pm.  Tickets cost only £5 per person and you can even see the Pleasure Grounds, Shop and Restaurant for free! Tours are free for National Trust members.

Whether you would like to muck around in the stables, see scrumptious delights in our Historic Kitchens or visit one of Turner’s masterpieces, there is a tour for everyone. Find out more on our website.
