If you are interested in politics/current affairs the property and the information it contains about the life and times of Edward Heath is fascinating. You really do get an insight into his character and his interests outside politics. The room guides were well informed and approachable and the garden a real surprise. I would mention the music room where one... More

After visiting Arundells - by pure chance on the centenary of Edward Heath's birthday - I felt rather guilty as I had never realised or appreciated what an amazing person he was: distinguished military career; accomplished musician; a great statesman and he'd captained the British team to win the Admirals Cup in 1971. As to Arundells - interesting items in... More

We visited on a Sunday and really enjoyed ourselves. The house has been preserved very much as it was when Sir Edward Heath died and reflects his interests of politics, music and sailing. It isn't very big but there is plenty to see and the volunteer guides were friendly and approachable. The garden was a surprise as it runs all... More

House with some history in a very good location in the close. Inside it is entirely dedicated to Edward Heath. Which is fine as he is an interesting past prime minister. But felt that the history of the house warranted greater coverage. Ted Heath should be an important part of the story, but only a part. Garden good with a... More

Thank you for your review; we're really pleased to hear that you had an interesting visit. It's great to hear your feedback too. The wider history of the house, and that of previous tennants, is certainly an area that we intend to offer more information on in the future. More

Visited the home of Ted Heath yesterday and even if you are not interested in his life and politics the house is well worth a visit. There are some interesting yachting and music memorablia collections and wonderful pictures by Churchill, Lowery, Sickert and many more. Didnt need a guided tour as the guides in all the rooms were more than... More

We have enjoyed visiting Salisbury's Cathedral Close twice before and had no idea of Arundells' existence until I read some reviews on TripAdvisor. I can only echo what they say - the house is well worth a visit but definitely pay for the guided tour. Ross did a great job of giving a historical and personal context to Sir Edward... More

Well worth a visit and particularly so for those old enough to remember Sir Edward whilst Prime Minister and subsequently. Of interest to anybody though who enjoys an insight into our politicians and their history. The house has an interesting history, it is well presented and full of artefacts. One can imagine Ted being very comfortable at home here! The... More

Well kept house with interesting memorabilia from the life and times of Sir Edward Heath. Informative room guides made the visit come to life explaining the origins of items and how they relate to the owner. The garden is lovely and had a memorial erected in 2015 to a friend and godson of Edward Heath whose lives were lost on... More

After visiting the Cathedral we went for a guided tour of Arundells, Sir Edward Heath's former House which is barely 200 Metres from the Cathedral. We had a very interesting tour of House and Gardens, lasting approx. 1 hour. I would recommend this, whether you are a fan of Ted Heath or not!

We went in simply to see how Ted Heath lived. There was an interesting exhibition in the old garage area - but the house was excellent, mostly because the guides were terrific. The room guides were extremely knowledgeable and had excellent senses of humour. Clearly they follow/copy some of the National Trust manners - but they do very well. The... More
