The cellars have original features, including windows from the Tudor house, the Georgian wine cellar, coal cellar and a room we used as an air raid shelter during World War II.

Due to limited places, tickets are strictly pre-booked only. Tours last about 90 minutes. The tour is not recommended for under 14s or those of a nervous disposition, and due to the nature of the building is unsuitable for those with mobility impairments.
