Overview

The Simpson family have been conducting guided tours around their home since the 1960s. The newest addition to the tour these days is the large archaeological dig.

This has provided considerable interest, as we believe we have the remains of a Norman Castle inside the grounds. The discoveries on the mound have reshaped the tours that are conducted in the house as the finds tie in in with the various occupants that have lived at Burton Court over the centuries. We now have collected the largest medieval pottery find in Herefordshire.

Along with the Medieval, Regency, Victorian and Edwardian architecture, the owners also have on display a variety of exhibitions including costumes, militaria, natural history and ship models.
