Guided Tours of House & Grounds

Full access to the house and grounds is with a professional guide only.

You can make a reservation by phone or reserve online, or buy a ticket at the door. Allow approximately an hour and a quarter for the tour. Please wear soft soled shoes (strictly no stilettos!).

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.
