Woodchester Mansion 2015

Woodchester Mansion opens its doors for the 2015 season

Hazard warningIn 2015 Woodchester Mansion is open every day except Mondays from Wednesday 1 April until Saturday 31 October, and the Mansion will be open on Bank Holiday Mondays.

Occasionally, the Mansion will be closed on a Saturday for a Woodchester Wedding or other private function, so if you plan to visit on a Saturday please check the open days page for a list of Saturdays on which we will be closed.

On each day that the Mansion is open, there will be a full service of guided tours and refreshments in the Servants’ Hall, now under the management of our Catering Manager Jo Scrivens. The minibus will also operate an hourly service to and from the car park. Guided tours take about an hour and a quarter and will take place at 11.45 am and 2.30 pm each day. On busy days, and if there are sufficient tour guides available, then there may be additional tours. Please seen the notice board outside the Mansion for the time of the next tour.

When you visit the Mansion, please park in the National Trust car park (normal parking charges apply). To get to the Mansion, go down the steps from the car park into Woodchester Park and turn right and walk down the hill – the Mansion is about two-thirds of a mile from the steps and will take you 10 to 15 of gentle down-hill walking. Alternatively, the Mansion minibus will provide transport to the Mansion.

The minibus will leave the foot of the steps from the NT car park hourly on the hour – and will leave the Mansion on the return journey about 15 minutes to the hour.
