During our summer season we offer guided tours of the house and grounds and a series of Special Events including music, Tudor culture and natural history. Please visit our site in Spring 2018 for full details and our programme of 2018 Special Events.
House and Grounds Today
Acton Court is believed to be the most ‘original’ Tudor house in Britain. In order to maintain the integrity of the building, as far as possible, it has been left in its original state. The empty house has a mysterious beauty that we have tried to preserve.
Tours of House & Grounds
Blue Badge guides tell the story of Acton Court, the Poyntz family who lived here, the monarchs they entertained and the state apartments they built for Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn.
History of Acton Court
In 1535, one of England’s most colourful kings, Henry VIII, came to stay at Acton Court with his second wife, Anne Boleyn, while on his summer Progress around the West Country.
