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.

Ted Heath was never a favourite but after visiting his house I changed my mind. His art that he collected was wonderful and all the rooms were livable. You were invited to sit on the chairs in his rooms something we have never encountered before. The dining room was an odd colour but the rest of the building was great... More

The house and gardens are super. Medieval, Tudor and Georgian segments are seamlessly integrated. Check out the dining room where the guess that Sir Edward had for dinner is extremely interesting. Very knowledgeable and approachable guides made the visit fascinating. We'll go again,

Came to visit over Easter and so nice to see it opened again. The house is lovely from the outside and as you walk in the entrance there are photographs and paintings and on left the main room with piano. You can go upstairs and see where Ted Heath worked and sometimes through the night. Also includes the red box... More
