Heritage Open Day
As part of England’s biggest heritage festival, this Grade II* listed house and gardens will be open to the public, free of charge, from 2:30pm – 5pm.
An artist from Versailles, a royal architect, and a pioneering gardener – just some of the colourful characters that will be brought to life on Sunday 11th September when Fetcham Park opens its door for Heritage Open Day.
Visitors will also have the chance to explore the Shell Room, Drawing Room and Salon, complete with elaborate plasterwork and decorative gold leaf. Marvel at original murals in the Great Hall by Louis Laguerre dating back to the early 1700s, and admire the grandeur of Surrey’s best-kept secret.
The Year of the English Garden
Coinciding with the 300th anniversary of Capability Brown, this year’s Heritage Open Days theme is the Year of the English Garden.
Thanks to local historian, Vivien White, the mystery of who designed the original gardens at Fetcham Park will be revealed at the Open Day, together with a detailed exhibition of her research.
During your visit, take a moment to step outside and meander through the tranquil gardens while you soak up the atmosphere of a bygone era.
