Enjoy free entry to Claydon House and the Verney family private gardens as part of Heritage Open Day.

Explore the house, gardens and courtyard and discover how the National Trust and Claydon Estate cares for this beautiful place.

Set in the rolling Buckinghamshire countryside, Claydon House has been the seat of the Verney family since 1620. Today, only a fragment / third/ one wing of the great house is still standing with its magnificent eighteenth-century state rooms. Much of the interior woodwork and elaborate carvings found throughout the house are unique to Claydon.

Explore Claydon’s gardens and travel back in time. Discover beautiful herbaceous borders, attractive pools, an extensive walled garden and an unusual historic glass house. Originally designed by John Sanderson, a pupil of ‘Capability’ Brown in the eighteenth century, many members of the family have made the gardens their own over the centuries.

Opening Times: Last entry 15.30.
