All tickets sold - waitlisting

Dorney Court is a finely preserved, and grade one listed, Tudor manor house.  Located near Windsor, it retains many of its original features and is still lived in by the family that has owned it for 500 years.  The house was remodelled at the end of the nineteenth century and the original bricks were restored to the front facade of the house.  The interior layout of the house is little changed from 1500.  The oldest part of the house is the panelled parlour, which contains some very fine antique furniture.  The great hall has numerous family portraits.

The house has been open to the public since 1981 and both the house and gardens have been used in many feature films and television programmes, including "Midsomer Murders", ITV's "Agatha Christie's Poirot", "The Adventure of the Western Star" and "Pride and Prejudice”.

We suggest that you arrive around midday and visit the Tea Room for a light lunch or bring a picnic which you can eat in the gardens.  Our tour of the house will commence at 1:30 pm and will last approximately 90 minutes.  The tour will be conducted by one of their guides who will be able to answer any questions you may have.  After the tour has finished sandwiches, tea and coffee will be served in the marquee near the garden shop (included in the ticket price).  Following this, you may wish to visit the beautiful gardens and mature parkland that surround the house.  For further information about Dorney Court, visit their web site at

NOTE: The house has two floors but for anyone who is unable to go upstairs there will be a video room available to see the major features of the second floor.  As with any ancient building some of the flooring and steps may be uneven and the doorways are quite low.
