Witley Court & Gardens, Great Witley

(4.8/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
A massive fire in 1937 destroyed Witley Court & Gardens, once one of the largest houses of England. The interior of the house was completely ruined, leaving only a shell of the palatial structure. To contrast the ruins of the mansion, take a walk through the well-maintained gardens. Pause to admire the fountains that still work like they did in the 1800s, and use the audio guide. Visit the small, attached church where Handel once played to see some baroque frescoes. For a break, play in the treehouse and run across the rope bridge at the Wilderness Play Area. Plan your visit to Witley Court & Gardens and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Great Witley tourist route planner.
