Garden season tickets are valid during out regular opening days, and there is a small upgrade fee for admission to the hall and servants’ quarters and a guided tour.

Hall Tours

Enjoy stories about the families who have lived at Kelmarsh since the 18th century, the construction of the hall in 1732 and how their lifestyles and tastes changed over the centuries with a guided tour.

A guided hall tour covers the nine principal rooms of the hall on the main floor.

Length: Approximately 55 minutes.
Price: A public tour is £2.50 for adults and free for children, in addition the entrance price.

Due to the narrow corridors and interactive features ‘Below Stairs’ we do not currently lead tours of the servants’ quarters and laundry.

You can book a place on arrival in the Visitor Centre, and spaces are allocated on a first come, first serve basis. Groups wishing to book should contact the Estate Office on 01604 686543 or enquiries@kelmarsh.com for more information.

Please note, that tour timings may be adjusted for operational or other purposes.
