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

We just happened upon this house and decided to visit. Really interesting. Edward Heath's collection made for interesting viewing. Lots of interesting things to look at. And you get to play on his actual piano. I play beautifully and got a standing ovation for my rendition of freer Jacqueline. The gardens were beautifully kept. Well worth a visit

The home of ex-Prime Minister Edward Heath is well worth a visit. The interior is lavishly decorated with many of the artifacts and mementos he collected during his time as a MP.

How fortunate Edward Heath was to live in such a beautiful house. One could easily imagine living at Arundells, rooms that are perfectly proportioned, with the most wonderful garden views and the river at the bottom of the garden! The guides, in each room, were very knowledgeable and interesting. We will return.

I knew nothing of Edward Heath prior to my visit, but left wishing that I had known him. It is well worth taking the guided tour, which is only available on certain days. Politics aside, Edward was a very interesting man and it is fascinating to see the room where he made so many decisions and the dining room where... More

Whatever your politics this is a really fascinating house to visit. It was the home of previous Prime Minister and each room shows photos and records of world leaders of the 20 th century. Heath's love for sailing and for music is well recorded . What makes your visit even more enjoyable is the outstanding knowledge of the friendly guides... More

We visited the house on a Saturday in July. There were a small number of visitors. We were able to spend time talking to the guides who were all very pleasant and helpful. Being of an age to recall Ted Heath as PM, we found the exhibits about the international personalities very interesting. We were aware of his sailing, and... More
