IMPORTANT VISITOR INFORMATION

 

Euston Hall is a private home, open to the public by kind permission of the 12th Duke and Duchess of Grafton. All profits resulting from our open days are donated to local charities via The Suffolk Community Foundation. Entrance to the Estate is via the Park entrance, located at postcode IP24 2QH.

Please do come early as there is a lot to see.  We open at 10am and close at 2pm.

Proceed through the entrance to park outside the Pay Hut, where you will be able to buy/collect your tour stickers.

There is Blue Badge/Disabled parking.  Please ask at the Pay Hut.

Please kindly ensure that you have cash with you, as we are currently not able to accept debit/credit cards.  We apologise for any inconvenience in this regard.

We regret that the Hall tour is not suitable for people with limited mobility due to the staircase connecting the Ground Floor to the 2nd and 3rd Floors.  Mobility scooters can, however, by used in the grounds and gardens.

Teas, coffees and light refreshments are available in the Euston Tea Room, located in the Old Kitchen. It is staffed by local volunteers who are fund-raising for St. Peter’s Church in Fakenham Magna and so operate on a cash only basis. The Tea Room also closes at 2pm.

Toilet facilities are located in the corridor by the Old Kitchen, including Disabled Facilities.

Picnics, during our opening hours of 10am and 2pm, are permitted within the Grounds, but please avoid main thoroughfares.

Dogs are welcome, but please do keep them on a lead and clean up after them. Unfortunately, no dogs are permitted in the Hall itself and for Health and Safety reasons, in the Tea Room.

The Guided Tours of the Hall commence every hour, starting at 10:30.  Please ensure that you have booked your place on one of the three tours on offer each morning.  Each tour is strictly limited to 20 people to ensure the best experience for everyone.

Kindly note that we only run three Hall tours per day, so please do pre-book your place (via the Leaping Hare Community Centre in Thetford, www.leapinghare.org) to ensure that you are not disappointed. Pre-booked options are available from 1st April 2018.

On days when we welcome large pre-booked groups, availability of tours will be affected.  We will publish the dates we are expecting tour groups on this website.

There are various seats dotted about the Hall for people who may wish to rest for a short while in a particular room whilst on tour, but visitors will unfortunately not be permitted to remain in the Hall if they are not able to continue on a tour.

There are a number of Stewards stationed at the Hall and they are identified by blue badges.  Please approach one of them should you need assistance or have a query about something.

We welcome photography in the grounds, as long as this is for personal use only and NOT for distribution on any social media sites, e.g. Facebook, Instagram etc.  No photography is permitted in the Hall itself.

There are a number of potential hazards in the Pleasure Grounds, including open water and ditches, so please proceed cautiously.
