Preston Manor reopens from 11 September

Welcome back to Preston Manor, Brighton’s beautifully preserved time-capsule of Edwardian life at home, with new opening hours for the winter season. 

Preston Manor will be reopening on 11 September. The manor has been cleaned and prepared and we are now ready to welcome you back into this fascinating historic country house. 

A visit to Preston Manor will bring you a fascinating insight into life in the Edwardian era, before and after the First World War. 

See how an upper-class Edwardian family lived and find out more about the servants that lived ‘below stairs’ and tended to the owners’ every need. 

Follow our new animal trail and see how many animals you can find hidden as you explore everywhere from the grand drawing room to the tiny servant bedrooms.

You may also feel a slight shiver down your spine from one of our famous ghosts!  

Preston Manor is surrounded by beautiful gardens, and overlooks Preston Park to the south, so there is plenty of room for everyone to stretch their legs or enjoy a picnic.  

Our wonderful walled garden also contains a pet graveyard, with the graves of the Stanford Family’s beloved pets, and George, The Pavilion Cat. 

Keeping visitors safe

To keep everyone safe, we have enhanced cleaning measures throughout the manor and hand gel will be available for all visitors. 

We’ve also introduced a new one-way system and will be asking everyone to keep to Covid-19 safe distance. 

To ensure the building is not overcrowded, we are limiting admission to groups of six people at a time. Please pre-book your visit through the Preston Manor website.  

Brighton & Hove residents are half price, with up to four accompanied children free of charge, we also have free parking on site for visitors. 

Watch our new re-opening video on our website and find out more about the measures we are taking to keep you safe. If you have a disability and need help with planning your visit, we are happy to help.  

All visits must be pre-booked so we can manage capacity and ensure you have a safe and enjoyable visit. The wearing of face coverings is now mandatory in all of our venues. 

Please visit our website or call our booking office for details of booking and opening times.
