As an inclusive part of a private visit to Friars Court your host, Charles Willmer, can take everyone on an informative, 45 minute, guided tour around the grounds. The route follows a level path, which is suitable for wheelchair users, and along the way Charles talks about the history of his home, the development of the gardens and the conservation work carried out on the 650 acre farm. After the tour visitors may continue to wander and explore the grounds at leisure or simply sit, relax and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the gardens on one of the main benches dotted around.

Visitors may visit the Coach House Musuem where they can see historical artefacts recovered from the land, photographs spanning 100 years and learn about the history of Friars Court. In addition there is a little Shop, located in the former Granary, which is stocked with a variety of gifts and cards from both local and national suppliers.
