For Teachers


Tours of the Manor House last one and a half hours and start at 10am, 11.30am and 1.30pm each day.

Please arrive at least 15 minutes before the tour start time. But you are welcome to arrive well before the tour start time and to stay on afterwards to make maximum use of the Visitor Centre services.

Group sizes

The Manor House has three floors and we usually limit numbers to approximately 35 per floor.  In each tour time slot we can take up to 100 children in total by splitting them into 3, starting each group on a different floor and progressively moving them around the House.


Tour of the Manor and use of Visitor Centre services costs £5.50 per child/student. Workshops can be arranged for an extra £2 per head. Day Packages cost £10 per head.


We normally admit one adult free of charge per 10 children for supervision purposes.  Extra assistants for children who require 1:1 care or have special needs are also admitted free of charge. 
For infants, the ratio is higher.

Risk Assessment

We continually monitor risk and have drawn up a list of information which should be studied by teachers prior to the visit and have included a matrix for Specific Risk Assessments.
See the Risk Assessment page and Downaload specific Risk Assessment matrix.
