Share this article

Snowshill Manor is opening its doors for a rare and exclusive tour where guests will be able to experience the Manor out of hours when it is normally closed to the public.

The Manor and Garden are the creation of Charles Paget Wade. Passionate about traditional skills and design, he began a curious collection of unusual and interesting objects as a young child creating an extraordinary ‘Aladdin’s Cave’ of unexpected delights.

His vision however was not of creating a museum, but of somewhere people could come and explore craftsmanship in an intimate way. “Charles Wade enjoyed inviting friends and showing them his collection” says Gosia Rumsey, Marketing Officer at Snowshill. “These one off tours are how Mr Wade would have liked his guests to experience the Manor.”

There will be a number of tours available starting between 5pm-8pm on Friday 17th May 2013. Each group of no more than 15 people will be shown round by an experienced and knowledgeable guide.

Tickets are priced at £15 per person and booking in advance is essential.

More information is available on or contact Gosia Rumsey on [email protected] , 01386 842814 or 07917 506210.
