Avebury Manor was decorated by the BBC when they made The Manor Reborn. Although the furnishings are replicated authentically they aren’t priceless heirlooms so you are encouraged to touch and even sit on them. It all looks very sumptuous and the staff are really welcoming...More

This is a small Manor House but a fascinating establishment. Each room is decorated and furnished in different periods. The chairs can be sat upon and drawers opened and so on. Touching is encouraged. The BBC paid for the furnishings when they wanted to present...More

Excellent Manor House that was featured in a BBC program a few years back. Each room tells a different story of a period in time relating to the house. You can touch, use, relax on the exhibits and even dress up in period-clothing and then...More
