Dorney Court is one of England’s outstanding Tudor Manor Houses. Grade 1 Listed, acknowledged for its architectural and historical importance while combining great character and warmth.
The House is home to the Palmer family, passing through fourteen generations, and hosts tours, weddings, filming and events.
Surrounded by mature parkland and traditional gardens, Dorney is widely regarded for its diverse collection of portraits, furniture and art – telling the stories of the lives and times of those who have been privileged to call it home.
Dorney is open in the summer and by appointment throughout the year. Regularly welcoming television and film productions, the House will be familiar from screen appearances.
Dorney Court is a stone’s throw from the River Thames, just 27 miles from Hyde Park Corner and within view of Windsor Castle.
Please note: The information on the Historic Houses website is advisory, but please always check the website of the house or garden you intend to visit before travelling.
