At the persent you can visit the Kiss and Tell sculpture which is well worth a visit. The rest of the Mansion is also worth a visit to learn and see about life here.

Most recently we have seen the exhibition focussing on Wolsey's angels and then the current one built...More

Great that Christchurch mansion is still available for free access and to see how life was years ago. All the rooms are as they were and there are old toys, cloths and tools on view.
