This year we have 2 separate tours to visit areas in the house that are not normally open to visitors. However, please note - these tours are SUBJECT TO VOLUNTEER AVAILABILITY.

It is a wonderful chance for visitors to look behind the scenes into two areas of the first floor of the house: Mrs Greville’s Apartment, Every day – 11.30 and 15.00, and on Weekdays only 13.00 and 15.00 - there are 10 spaces on each tour. Royal Guests’ Suites – Weekdays only 12.30 and 14.30 - there are 8 spaces on each tour. These short tours will last about 20 mins each, taking visitors through either Mrs Greville’s Bedroom, peeking into her Ritz bathroom and finishing in the boudoir, with its magnificent views across the Valley and down Bagden Drive. Or into the King’s Suite and the other guest suite corridors learning about Mrs Greville’s royal connections and a glimpse into the stores. These tours will be great for visitors wanting to see behind the scenes and learn a little more about Mrs Greville and her life.

This event is free, but normal admission charges apply for the venue.

Book your tour on the day at the entrance to the house on a 'first come, first served' basis, and then meet there before the start of the tour. Tickets are not pre-bookable.

Please be advised that you do need to be able to manage walking up and down stairs, and they are standing tours, with no seats provided.

Although these tours are free, we would appreciate any donation to help maintain these spaces. Suggested £2 donation at the end of the tour.
