At Killerton you will find a glorious landscape garden, surrounded by parkland with a fine 18th century house. We’re delighted to welcome visitors back to enjoy the ground floor of the house, it’s open daily 1-4pm (last entry 3.30pm).

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. The upstairs fashion collection is due to reopen on 21st June, subject to Government restrictions lifting.

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 tress 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.

We have a booking system in place to keep everyone safe and maintain social distancing. To book your tickets visit: www.nationaltrust.org.uk/killerton/whats-on
