Built in 1732, successive owners and influences have left their imprint on this elegant Palladian style home. From noted antiquarian William Hanbury to banker and horse-racing enthusiasts Richard Naylor, each resident’s stories can be found within the hall. But none more so than Nancy Lancaster, ‘doyenne of the Country House style’ or the servants working and living ‘below stairs’ and in the laundry.

Visiting Kelmarsh offers a wonderful insight into the lives of those who loved Kelmarsh as their family home throughout its history, and we welcome groups to visit and enjoy Kelmarsh throughout the season.

To book as a group we require a minimum of 15 people for the visit, but we request all groups, whatever their size, contact us in advance so we can offer the best experience. We ensure a member of the team will meet and greet your group on arrival, and to start you on your day.

For specific prices and to check availability of dates, please contact us on 01604 686543 or email
