At Killerton you will find a glorious landscape garden, surrounded by parkland with a fine 18th century house. The ground floor of the house is open daily 1-4pm (last entry 3.30pm) until 5 November 2023.

The entrance hall, the music room, the staircase hall, the drawing room, library and dining room are available for viewing. As you wander through these rooms, imagine Killerton as the home of an active, busy family who enjoyed a wide range of country pursuits. Mackintoshes in the entrance hall, dogs on the sofa in the music room and the library scattered with books and correspondence.

Upstairs where there were once bedrooms, now houses the fashion exhibition. The 'Thirsty For Fashion' exhibition explores circular fashion from the 18th century to the present day. Items from the National Trust’s largest fashion collection highlight some of the techniques used to repair and reuse clothing throughout history.

Take a walk to visit the chapel and admire the architecture of this grade I listed building. Have a look inside, it’s also a wonderful place to seek comfort and reflect. The interior of the chapel is unusual as the pews face each other rather than the altar so that the congregation could all see each other.

There’s plenty of calm space in the glorious garden, beautiful year-round with rhododendrons, magnolias, champion trees and formal lawns. You can explore winding paths, climb and extinct volcano, discover an Iron Age Hill fort and take in distant views towards Dartmoor.
