West Horsley Place Family & Fan Days are split into morning and afternoon sessions in order to ease congestion and ensure everyone can park.

Please check in at the arrival desk during your entrance timeslot. Last entry for the afternoon session will be at 3pm. 


Hot drinks, savoury snacks and cakes will be available on the day at our pop-up cafe at Place Farm Barn. We're very happy for you to bring a picnic into the walled gardens or Place Farm courtyard, but please take any rubbish away with you. 


Only assistance dogs are permitted inside the manor house and walled gardens. However, we have a 380- acre estate in which you are most welcome to take your well-behaved pooch for a walk.
