One of England’s finest Tudor Manor Houses. Dorney Court welcomes visitors every afternoon in August promising a safe and happy experience.
CLOSED UNTIL MAY 2021
Regarded as one of England’s finest Tudor Manor Houses, Dorney Court is an exceptional part of the UK's national heritage and one of the South East's best kept secrets.
The House is home to the Palmer Family who, as custodians, have cared for the property and surrounding Estate for 500 years. Today, visitors will find a remarkably characterful property nestled in landscaped gardens and overlooking mature parkland and ancient yew hedges while horses, cattle and sheep graze the surrounding meadows.
Inside Dorney Court, visitors will enjoy a distinctive heritage experience that offers something for all ages including the spectacular Great Hall, artworks, tapestries, eccentric architecture and (possibly) the spectre of a ghostly apparition of a bald woman stalking the landings.
The church of St. James the Less, which dates back to the Norman Conquest, towers next to the House and Windsor Castle floats in the distance while the Thames and Dorney Lake lie a short walk away.
The House and grounds are recognisable from regular appearances on screen including most recently: David Copperfield, All Is True, Belgravia, Endeavour, Midsomer Murders and The Last Dragon Slayer.
Dorney is a special rural oasis, a bastion against the suburban sprawl West of London and preserves a corner of quintessential England. Whether you are visiting Dorney Court for a tour, wedding or a private event we hope that, like us, you will be enchanted by the magic and the history of the house and grounds.
