and welcome to the Corsham Court web page. This privately owned historic house, with its significant art collection, is open to visitors. Located in Corsham and sign-posted off the A4 some 4.5 miles west of Chippenham (Junction 17 off M4) in North Wiltshire, the house and gardens are well worth a visit. Click on any of the pictures below to find out more.
Groups of 15 or more (max. 45 persons) at other times throughout the year by prior appointment only with the curator (email: firstname.lastname@example.org). Morning bookings preferred.
Additionally, the Breakfast Room and Library in the private wing are open by guided tour only (max. group size 15) during normal opening hours on:
June 19th, 20th, 21st, 23rd and 24th 2018
August 7th, 8th, 9th, 11th and 12th 2018
The private wing is not otherwise open to the public. Booking is not necessary for these guided tours, although as numbers are limited, a call to the curator (on 01249 712214/701610) in advance to check availability is recommended.
The painting "Tobias and the Angel", which normally hangs in the Cabinet Room (Cat. no. 18), is featured in the "Beyond Caravaggio" exihibition presently on display in Edinburgh. Its return is anticipated imminently, although we apologise for any disappointment caused to visitors in the meantime.
Guided tours of the Breakfast Room and Library will be charged at an additional £2.00 per person.
Some parking is available for visitors to the Court in Church Square. This lies immediately south of the Court entrance gates and a short walk from the front door. Campervans and caravans may not be parked in Church Square, where space is limited. Instead, they should be left in the public car park that is situated some five minutes walk away.
Wheelchair users (accompanied by one carer or companion) may visit the gardens free of charge during opening hours. We regret that motorised wheel chairs cannot be accommodated in the house, although a non-motorised pushed wheelchair is available to be borrowed without charge. Wheelchair users should bear in mind that the Staterooms are on the ground floor, but that this is at a higher level than the entrance. A platform lift is made available to reach the necessary level, where the pushed wheelchair may be used. Disabled visitors should drive up to the front door of the house for direction to parking facilities.
(We regret that the Court is not licensed for civil wedding ceremonies and is not generally available for receptions or similar functions.)
