Up to the attics, down to the cellars and everywhere in between...
A guided tour of Glemham Hall by the owner, Philip Hope-Cobbold
You will be guided around the majority of the Hall, from the depths of the cellars, right up to the largely untouched servant quarters in the attics, whilst learning about its vast history and stunning architecture, where elements of the Elizabethan era can still be seen.
Philip will provide an engaging talk covering art, historical events, previous occupants and what it was like to grow up on a country estate. He is a wonderful host with a dry sense of humour, which encourages many a tall tale!
"Philip is a wonderfully exuberant host and we all enjoyed a lovely afternoon. The homemade cakes were delicious"
The Gardens feature an avenue of Irish Yew, a stunning Rose Garden, herbaceous borders and a Summerhouse. Wooden benches dotted here and there encourage you to sit back, relax and enjoy these beautiful spaces.
Tours booked through Glemham Hall last for approximately 2 hours and include tea, coffee and a slice of home-made cake
