Willicombe Park Opens Its' Doors

18 August 2010

Heritage Open Days celebrates England's fantastic architecture and culture by offering free access to properties that are usually closed to the public or normally charge for admission. For four days every year in September, buildings of every age, style and function throw open their doors, ranging from castles to factories, town halls to tithe barns, parish churches to Buddhist temples.

This year, Willicombe Park, a beautifully restored Victorian mansion house, will be opening its doors to the public and sharing its interesting past both as a Barnardos Children's Home and as a Training Centre for St Christopher's Nursery Nurses, as well as showing off the wonderful restoration work carried out by Audley to form the vibrant retirement village it is today.

This year, the event will run from Thursday 9 September to Sunday 12 September between 11:00am and 4:00pm with guided tours available.

There will be an opportunity to enjoy a light lunch and/or afternoon tea at very reasonable prices and the bar will also be open during these times.
