Wentworth Woodhouse invites you to wander in and explore its principal rooms in your own time, imagining yourself perhaps at a grand ball or luxurious dinner as the House opens its doors to free-flow visits.
Room Stewards will be on hand to help with queries and a children’s activity sheet is available for younger visitors. The House is available to explore from 1.00pm every day of our usual opening days.
So You’re Aware…
Although we have 365 rooms in total, only our State Rooms are available to explore as much of the House is still unsafe for visitors.
You may notice that some of our State Rooms appear quite dark as their shutters are closed. This is because UV rays from sunlight are one of the main causes of damage here at Wentworth Woodhouse. As a Preservation Trust, it is our duty to protect and preserve the House for future generations so we have taken the decision to close some shutters in order to best conserve the rooms.
All-Day Access to the Gardens
Though entry to the House is on a time slot basis, with your ticket you will get all-day access to the Gardens, open from 10.00am. If you book a late afternoon session for your House admission, we encourage you to visit the Gardens first (ahead of your booked time slot) to ensure you get the most from your visit.
Remember, any money made from visiting us goes straight into the Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust and contributes towards the restoration of this magnificent house and gardens.
