Avington Park is pleased to be associated with Historic Houses and welcomes HH members (formally HHA) into Avington Park free of charge on the dates/times we are open to the public. Please ensure you bring your membership card with you when you visit.
PRIVATE GROUP TOURS
Private tours for groups (minimum 20) are most welcome all year round by arrangement. Catering can be arranged if required, from light lunches, cream teas, home-made cakes, or simply tea, coffee and biscuits.
St Mary’s Church is in the grounds and may also be visited as part of your tour. For groups we can also arrange for a Barrel Organ recital. Of all the remaining barrel organs in England, perhaps none has a more idyllic and typical setting than the one here at Avington.
