This fine Elizabethan House, whose foundation was laid in 1577, is home to precious collections of paintings, furniture and needlework. The Long Gallery at 158’ is the third longest Long Gallery in a private house and the Great Hall, with ts mullioned windows, overlooks the South Downs. Simon Jenkins, former Chairman of the National Trust, placed it in his Top Twenty of ‘England’s Thousand Best Houses’ stating ‘nothing at Parham is superfluous, nothing unloved. It is a House of Magic’.

On arrival we will have morning refreshments followed by a guided tour of the House. After a Ploughman’s Buffet, tea/coffee and cake, members can return to the House on a free-flow basis and/or visit the gardens at their leisure.
