SHARING THE BEAUTY OF ARUNDELLS


After our guided tours have ended, nearly all of our visitors tell us how much they have enjoyed the tour, giving them a completely new perspective on the owner, changing and enhancing their view of his personality, and what he achieved in his long and varied career

We think this is just as Sir Edward Heath would have wanted it, along with the visitors' opportunity to 'share the beauty of Arundells', the beautiful two acre garden with its quintessentially English outlook, his fascinating, revealing, and personal art collection, sailing and musical memorabilia, and the homely lived-in aspect of the house itself

We don't believe that he would have envisaged that over 60,000 people have been delighted in taking the opportunity to visit Arundells in the first 8 years of its opening. He would be thrilled of course with the outcome and renewed interest in his home and eventful life. This feedback makes it so worthwhile and rewarding for all of us, and it is clear from the comments that the visitors loved to be welcomed into the house and be given a personal and informative tour of it

We have been privileged to show off this beautiful house and its contents, being informative about the details, and relating stories, anecdotes, and also to hear laughter and conversation reverberating around the rooms, bringing his home to life. Our friendly, welcoming and intimate tours were appreciated by all our visitors (if the visitors' book, emails and letters were anything to go by!), and return visits are frequent. The interior and feel of the house itself has been retained as he lived in it, and indeed almost as it was when he first moved here in 1985

We would like to welcome all our visitors to a fascinating and richly memorable visit

and as Sir Edward generously quoted: 'to share the beauty of Arundells'
