Stourhead Gardens (photo: National Trust)

Stourhead estate on the Wiltshire-Somerset border is the perfect day out for everyone. A breathtaking 18th century landscape garden with lakeside walks, grottoes and classical temples is only the beginning.

You can also visit Stourhead House, a Palladian mansion with a fantastic regency library and beautiful art collection. Then why not climb the 205 steps to the top of King Alfred's Tower, an amazing red-brick folly, for vistas over Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire, or explore one of our Iron Age hill forts.

We also have a large National Trust shop and restaurant, as well as an art gallery, pub, ice cream parlour and farm shop for you to enjoy. Please call or visit our website for a full events programme, information about group visits and access for visitors with disabilities.

During February and March some of the showrooms will be open to show conservation work.

Some of the showrooms open during December will be decorated for Christmas.

Please call for other House opening times throughout the year, and for King Alfred's Tower opening times.
