Guided House Tours
Twice a day, Carrick Hill’s friendly and knowledgeable volunteer guides take visitors through the house, sharing the history of the Haywards and their home, as well as the artworks and furnishings.
On the tour, you’ll discover paintings from the collection by Dobell, Gaugin and Sickert. There are sculptures by Jacob Epstein of Albert Einstein, Bernard Shaw and Sir Winston Churchill. You’ll explore the unique decor styled around English country living, including exquisite William Morris furnishings.
Public guided house tours are at 11.30am & 2.30pm daily.
Guided Garden Tours
Designed by Ursula Hayward, and modelled on the English country park, Carrick Hill's arts and craft style garden was once an elegant setting for social events and tennis parties.
Discover the history and development of the Carrick Hill formal gardens with our newly trained Garden Guides. The one hour tour is held Wednesday & Saturday's, leaving from the bottom of the Pavilion stairs.
Bookings are essential and group size is limited.
Garden tours are not currently recommended for visitors with limited mobility, wheelchairs or prams, due to the use of stairs and uneven ground. We are working on an accessible option for future visitors.
In the case of extreme weather or temperatures forecast over 34 degrees at 2pm the day prior to the tour, the tour will not go ahead. Ticket holders are to contact Carrick Hill to reschedule or arrange a full refund.
