Chipping Campden, Gloucestershire

Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 September 2018 - 10am to 4pm 

No booking required for visiting the house and gardens.


The Landmark Trust is opening Old Campden House in association with the second weekend of Heritage Open Days.

CCHS bring their recent archaeological and archive research findings to life on this weekend. Come and experience aspects of Jacobean life in a range of activities for all ages: a family trail, archery, bowls and other pastimes; demonstrations, and displays about the project.
 
Once a Jacobean prodigy house built by Sir Baptist Hicks in 1612, Old Campden House was burnt down by Royalist soldiers in the Civil War, leaving just the tantilisingly beautiful pair of Banqueting Houses, Almonry, Gate Lodges and the ghost of pleasure gardens.
Entry is free and we welcome all ages.
Sturdy footwear is advised.

 

PLEASE NOTE: The ground at this site is uneven throughout with occasional rabbit holes, so please wear appropriate footwear and take care. The buildings have narrow spiral staircases.

Admission is free and leaflets are provided detailing the building's history.
