Looking for great days out with your kids? Love historic houses, castles and gardens?  The Historic Houses Association (HHA) may have the perfect solution for you…

The HHA represents privately owned historic properties around the UK. As HHA Friends, you could visit over 300 of them, free!

Every property is unique. Some are world-famous, while others are smaller and more intimate.  Some open all year round while others open on fewer, selected dates.

Fun for all

Many are still lived in, often by families who have owned them for centuries.  They’re waiting for you to discover them and the stories of the people who have lived there.

  • Step into film and TV heaven at the real-life locations for Downton Abbey, Poldark, SPECTRE, Harry Potter and other productions
  • Lose yourself in marvellous mazes at Hever Castle (Kent), Somerleyton Hall (Suffolk), Scone Palace (Scotland) or Tatton Park (Cheshire)
  • Get up close and personal with hawks and owls at Muncaster (Cumbria), hunt the dinosaurs at Knebworth (Hertfordshire) or take on a Knight’s Quest and meet medieval jesters at Alnwick Castle (Northumberland)
  • In the 300th anniversary year of the birth of ‘Capability’ Brown, enjoy some of Brown’s most wonderful landscapes at Blenheim Palace (Oxfordshire), Burghley (Lincolnshire), Longleat (Wiltshire), Burton Constable and Scampston (both Yorkshire)
