In 2017 the Treasure Houses of England are running many exciting events for families to learn about our exciting cultural heritage.  In total 10 houses are open to visitors who can explore delightful stately homes, castles and palaces. Exhibitions and activities will be available for all ages. 

Example events:


Explore an exciting restoration project taking place at Beaulieu. The team of conservators and historians are restoring the Victorian Kitchen and posting fascinating updates on their blog.

Visitors can hopefully visit the finished project from Easter onwards. Even better, part of the late Lord Montagu's private apartment in Palace House has also been opened for the first time. 

Two new exhibitions: The Lady and the Rebel, which pays tribute to two remarkable women in the Montagu family, and the first dedicated Soviet Russian art gallery in the UK, with the Art Russe Foundation as well as the chance to see Edward, Lord Montagu's library.

Burghley House at night

Experience Burghley House in a different light this 2017. See a floodlit Burghley by twilight for a special event in October. This is the first time that the House will open at night, offering a magically new perspective on the Tudor building.

Chatsworth fashion

New for 2017 Chatsworth will present its most ambitious exhibition to date, exploring the history of fashion and adornment: House Style: Five Centuries of Fashion at Chatsworth. The event will be very exciting with never-before-seen items from the Devonshire Collection displayed to the public. Many stories will unravel and delve into the lives of the interesting characters to have frequented Chatsworth.
