Spent a lovely hour or so visiting this beautiful house and garden and could have spent longer if we'd had the time. It's full of many interesting objects, art and photos. The Chinese wallpaper on the landing is stunning and the photos of Sir Edward with various ex Prime Ministers, Presidents and Royalty bring a real personal touch. There's such... More

Had a few hours hear exploring the former home of Sir Edward Hesth. The home has a very homely feel and all the rooms are just as they would have been when Sir Edward lived there. Very interesting pictures and memrobila adorn the rooms and there is also a good selection of cartoons from the era that depict historical moments... More

We visited here yesterday and had an excellent guide, Carol, who conducted a very informative and friendly tour. The house is stunning with many delightful surprises, including 8 paintings by Piper, 2 by Winston Churchill and a delightful chinese wallpaper on the stairs.It was a real privilege to walk through the rooms which have been kept as they were in...

of all the buildings, museums etc in the Cathedral Close, this is a must. Not only because of its history with the Ex Prime Minister Edward Heath, but the buildings history in general, its gardens and the fact the nothing has been moved or changed since Mr Heath died.

The former home of Sir Edward Heath is not always open so on this trip we decided to visit it and to bypass the more eye catching cathedral. We were glad we did! The house is picture perfect from the outside and it was exciting to look inside. The rooms are relatively small and packed with interesting collectors items and... More

We've visited three times now and it is as informative and insightful now as it was the first time around. It's a snapshot in time, perfectly preserved as it was when Heath was alive, the study and living room incredible with all his photos, souvenirs and memorabilia just as he left it. Nor do you have to have been a... More

This is a great place to visit with lovely people and views around the whole garden. This is a great thing to see and it shows how lucky Edward Heath was to be in such a big house. The tour people bring the feel of admiration and love for this great man which just adds to this great house

Loved the visit. The stewards were so friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. We could feel Ted Heath's presence in the house and garden. Well worth the visit. Will definitely return.

I spend 2 hours visiting the house and gardens and particularly enjoyed the art on the walls and the many gifts from foreign heads of state. The gallery of cartoons took me right back to the period when Sir Edward was PM and provided some great insights. There were very helpful staff in every room who provided a wealth of... More
