Shuttleworth House – Open House & Tours

Shuttleworth House will open to the public free of charge from 11:00 – 15:00

Free entry, no ticket required – donations welcome!

Welcome to Shuttleworth House, opening its doors this April! Immerse yourself in the rich history of the Shuttleworth family at Old Warden Park, where entry is absolutely free. Explore our captivating story and delve into the legacy of this remarkable estate.

Visit the Grade II* House set within the historic Lakeside Parkland. Inside, the rooms are full of original period detail, including a Victorian Grand Piano, enormous chandeliers, gold-leafed ceilings and panelled walls.

You’d be excused for thinking this is a Jacobean manor house, with its mullioned windows and warm honey stone. In fact, it’s a Victorian homage by the famous architect, Henry Clutton, built-in 1875 for Joseph Shuttleworth, Richard’s grandfather. The clocktower, however, is a definite Victorian giveaway!

Free entry, no ticket required – donations welcome!

Shuttleworth House promises an unforgettable experience for all, offering a perfect blend of education and entertainment.
