Came with a tour party and we were treated to an excellent tour of the fine art collection by the owner.

The house is still lived in so only a few rooms are open, on the ground floor. Packed with art and there were room guides in two of the rooms but they didn't say much. The information provided about each room was fairly basic. I think the idea is that you should buy a guide book. I was not impressed.... More

The rooms that are open to the public are the same ones that have been for decades, and these contain most of the historic collection. All visitors are given a list identifying the 100 or so paintings on show and the experienced guides (there are always four on duty in the rooms - not two) are more than happy to... More

As two of a party of 28 pre-booked visitors we had the privilege of a private tour of the main rooms before the property opened. The main room is a triple cube and contains a most wonderful art collection. All the rooms seemed to have so many items of furniture etc. from the 16th century almost unique in a country... More

Whilst walking around Corsham we came upon This Court. Whilst staff were keen to tell you much about the place, most was based on the Art which covered the walls making it very much an art museum. There was much more than this to see but much less knowledge given. The house was beautiful as were the grounds with beautiful... More

Lots of information on the paintings in the building (ground floor rooms only). Limited information on the other exhibitions and wonderful ceiling in the long gallery and the gilded mirrors unless you ask the guides. Gardens were lovely but not sure I saw it all but was not going to pay an extra 50p for the garden plan, would have... More

Worth a visit if you're in the area. Impressive collection of old paintings and décor in the state rooms. Knowledgeable room guides. It's worth exploring the extensive grounds. Make sure that you don't miss the walled gardens and the gothic bath house.

How can a house be both impressive and yet not? It is indeed a fine house from the outside and the grounds and gardens are wonderful but somehow it seems to feel a bit like an old fashioned art gallery. £20 for two seemed a bit steep too but the setting is really wonderful even if the house is undewelming

James M, Owner at Corsham Court, responded to this review

I am glad you liked the grounds and the gardens. Your point about the State Rooms seeming like an old-fashioned art gallery is interesting, because I see this as a strength, rather than a weakness... After all, the rooms were laid out in the 18th century for the public to come and admire the collection of Old Master paintings. By... More
