Explore Antony's connections to war and conflict with our object-in-focus house trail.

Pick up an information booklet and discover the stories behind some of the artefacts and militaria found throughout the house.

From the English Civil War to the Second World War, the Carews of Antony have been involved in local and international conflicts. Learn more about these clashes, read their war stories, and discover the treasure trove of militaria that the Antony collection holds.

The house is open between 12.30pm and 4.30pm (last entry 4pm) on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Sundays (from June-August), and all Bank Holidays until 31st October 2024.

PLEASE NOTE: As Antony is a lived-in family home, we cannot always guarantee that the upstairs of the house will open, and some of the artefacts highlighted on the trail may not be visible on these days.

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

Suitable for children

Wheelchairs and mobility scooters enter through a separate entrance to the house. Please ask the volunteer on the porch for a copy of the information booklet.
