We were advised at the Close entrance the house was open to the public ,so we drove to the car park , paid to park, and walked to the front door of the house but then to be informed we had instead to walk around to the door at the side. We followed the other visitors to the door but... More

We would always be very concerned if any visitors to Arundells were unhappy with our tours. We take great pride in the way we treat our visitors as is evidenced by our other reviews on Tripadvisor. However, there are several points of concern with the review by 'brian840019'. Having contacted Brian, he states that this alleged incident took place early... More

Finding this house was by far the highlight of our current trip to the UK this time. It has everything a great house visit needs. Unexpected art, (Churchill, Sargent, Wylie...) truly dedicated staff and volunteers, a fresh and invigorating perspective on the English Country Home - really I could go on. This is a new opportunity and literally right next... More

There were four adults in our party for the first tour of the day (11.00 am Saturday) so we had our own personal guide. She was excellent! Very knowledgeable and answered all our questions confidently and in a friendly way. What I particularly like about this property is that it feels like home and not a museum. It has an... More

Far better than I expected - a fascinating collection of pictures and political and sailing memorabilia together with a very pleasant and very well kept garden.

So glad we went in and saw this most interesting house with a wonderful garden and learned about Ted Heath. What a fascinating man he was and with so many interests and amazing skills such as sailing, conducting, art collecting and of course politics.

This is a most interesting and charming house in a beautifull setting. The guided tour takes an hour plus and gives an insight to the character of one of our most enigmatic PM s . As to be expected plenty of sailing memerobilia but also a large and eclectic picture collection and some nuggets of information such as Heath was... More

We visited this house in Salisbury Cathederal Close easy to get to very reasonably priced Peter the guide was very very informative and knew a lot about Ted Heath and the house. I would recommend this to anyone. Also so very close to the Miliary Museum, Mompreston House NT, plus the Cathederal and one of the original copies of Magna... More

Away from politics, Edward Heath lived in an idyllic spot in the Cathedral Close, Salisbury, his drawing room and bedroom windows overlooking the Close and the Cathedral, and the back of the house (his study) overlooking his beautiful garden and the river running at the bottom of it. Immensely peaceful and private, yet a stone's throw from Salisbury city centre.... More

For a small entrance fee you will get the chance to glimpse the life of Sir Edward Heath with the assistance of knowledgable guides . The tour takes about 1 hour and you get to sit in his home and see his possessions . Did not know what to expect but thouroughly enjoyed our visit.
