Hello Heritage Open Day

Sunday 11th September, 10:30 am - 4:30 pm.

The 1620s House and Garden invites you to attend our Hello Heritage Open Day. Discover this Heritage gem located in the heart of Leicestershire.

Explore our incredible 17th Century house to learn about its rich history: learn how its former inhabitants were connected to the Gunpowder Plot, marvel at the bed where King Richard III once slept, and learn how the house and its inhabitants were protected from evil spirits. To really see the history of the house come to life, take a guided tour with one of our enthusiastic volunteers!

Wander through our tranquil gardens and orchard where you will find plants, herbs and vegetables that are grown authentically – just like when the house was in use. Our garden volunteers will also be on hand to answer any green-thumbed questions you might have.

We will have a selection of local traders on our main lawn displaying their arts and crafts for you to buy, perfect for gifts or just as a treat for yourself! Then why not try out one of the enriching activities we have on offer?

Recharge in our unique Barn café with a drink and a slice of homemade cake!

This is a perfect opportunity to uncover all that the 1620s House and Garden, and the local community, has to offer.
