Deene Park has been the home of the Brudenell family for 500 years since 1514 and was the seat of the 7th Earl of Cardigan who led the Charge of the Light Brigade in 1854.

The house has grown in size as generations have made their own mark through the years, providing the visitor with an interesting yet complementary mixture of styles.

Group Visits

As Deene Park is a fully-functioning family home, private guided tours are generally accommodated Tuesday to Thursday from 10.30am onwards.

A tour of the house typically lasts one hour and 25 minutes; the room sizes vary therefore large groups of more than 20 people will be divided into smaller groups to avoid overcrowding.

On private tour days the Old Kitchen tea room provides a cosy atmosphere for groups wishing to take refreshments during their visit.

Groups wishing to visit the house during public open days are welcome.
