Afterwards, enjoy a rare opportunity to explore the magnificent interiors of five main reception rooms with their exquisite craftsmanship and vast artifact collection. Then, take a stroll outside to appreciate the Parsons family’s 400-year commitment to horticulture and botany. Free time allows you visit the Formal Gardens, the Great Telescope, I-LOFAR, the Science Galleries and the 120 acres of gardens and parklands.
