Overview
More
This lovely Elizabethan mansion house with its 12th century monastic origins was Gothicised by Sir Roger Newdegate during the second half of the 18th century and with its soaring fan vaults, plunging pendants and filigree tracery, stands as the most breathtaking and complete example of early Gothic Revival architecture. Arbury Hall, standing in the midst of rolling lawns, surrounded by many acres of beautiful parkland, seven miles from the centre of England has been the home of the Newdegate family since the 16th Century. George Eliot was born on the Estate in 1819 where her father was the Agent and features Arbury in her novel "Scenes of Clerical Life". The Hall and Gardens are open to the public on four Bank Holiday Weekends only (Sunday and Mondays) from Easter to September each year. Pre-booked visits for groups of 25 and over can be arranged during weekdays from April to end of September. For admission prices please see the website.

Really interesting guided tour of the house, fabulous tea in café, and as a regular visitor I have never seen the gardens looking more beautiful. Memorable visit.

Open Bank Holidays only apart from the occasional special day. Nice grounds with water features and some wildlife, decent gardens. Timed guided tours only but these are very good. Pleasant tea room. Recommended.
