Dorney Court Tours
Read MoreShow Less
Dorney Court is one of England's finest Tudor manor houses where generations of the Palmer family have lived for nearly 500 years. The manor house is located among landscaped gardens and parks, and flocks of sheep graze in the nearby fields. Inside the house, visitors can admire portraits that represent each of the 13 generations of the Palmer family dating back several centuries and tell the history of this home. The rooms are filled with traditional oak furniture, four poster beds, lacquer cabinets, carved paneling, silks, and tapestries. Much of the furniture dates from the Restoration since Dorney Court was looted by by Cromwellian forces.
Visitors can explore the Great Hall, kitchens, cellars, passageways, living quarters, and courtyards which provide a view of a typical medieval house. Since this is still a living home, some sections have been updated as recently as the 1970s, and the home continues to evolve. Dorney Court has been open to the public since 1981, and a great deal of work has gone into restoring and preserving the home and property.
Dorney Court is located 26 miles from central London in the village of Dorney on Court Lane. Opening hours are 1:30pm to 5pm on Sunday and Monday May Bank Holidays and throughout the month of August. Group tours are available by appointment only during other times of the year. General admission is 8 pounds.
