elcome to all the information you need to help you search out and visit the best of Britain’s heritage. You will find all the details you need from up to date opening times and prices to details of shops and restaurants, car parking and whether you can take your dog.
Click Where to Go at the top to search for places to visit by region and then by county so that you can plan a day trip from home or several for a holiday away.
Look under What to Do if you want to visit a specific type of site, perhaps a garden or church, or if you want to find a great café or somewhere children will enjoy, or just to discover new places to go.
Click on Read About for features and articles that will entertain and inform, as well as news and recipes. You can shop online here too, at our eShop which will introduce you to some heritage books and help you buy a guidebook before you visit.
What to Do will take you to our Calendar of Events. Country houses make marvellous settings for a huge range of activities from fun runs to horse trials, car rallies to craft fairs and mass music festivals to more intimate outdoor theatre. Have a look!
Or if you are planning a wedding and want a setting made for dreams and you will find that all the details you need to make the day just right for you are here.
And don’t forget to nominate your favourite heritage picnic spot this year to join in with our major national competition!
For me, my local great house has become a place for regular visits, for coffee with friends, for shopping for special gifts and high quality local food, for a walk with the dog, for theatre trips with guests, cycling and concerts with teenage children, dressing up and craft with smaller kids and plant hunting expeditions with gardening grandparents. Hudson’s will help you discover your special heritage places.
