Brewery open days 2018

Event starts: 06 October 2018
Event ends: 07 October 2018

The Brewery and Servants' Quarters are open to the public

Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 October 2018

breweryThis is a chance to see parts of the Mansion that are not normally open to the public.

Throughout most of the open season, we cannot open the Brewery to the public as it is the home of the Mansion's Greater and Lesser Horseshoe bat colonies. However, the bats leave the Mansion for their winter hibernation during September and we take this opportunity to open the Brewery and the Servants' Quarters to our visitors.

Find out why the Mansion was to have its own brewery, and learn about the brewing process with our specialised tour guides - and, also, see where the Leigh family servants would have lived.


The Brewery and Servants' Quarters will only be open on Saturday 6 October and Sunday 7 October in 2018.

The Mansion will be open from 11.00am until 5.00pm (last admission 4.00pm) on both 6 and 7 October 2018. Normal admission charges apply and there is no additional charge for the tour of the Brewery and Servants' Quarters - but please note that children under 12 years will not be allowed on the tours.
