Enjoy a glimpse of England through the ages and explore the history of a
house, a family and a nation.
The House is first and foremost a family home to the Palmers, as it has been for nearly 500 years. Evidence of this is fairly conspicuous, from dogs (Snippet & Mubra) emerging from priest holes to sightings of small children (Isobel, Peregrine & Wilf) rampaging across the lawns.
Dorney Court offers more than just a special historical experience and any visit is, more often than not, very memorable.
The Palmer family is looking forward to opening the house and grounds to the public this June when we will again be delighted to share our wonderful home.
Group tours and private visits, at any time of year, are available by arrangement although subject to minimum numbers/pricing. Public opening when all visitors are welcome without reservation is every afternoon in June.
TOURS & OPEN DAYS
There are a range of flexible options for visiting Dorney Court and it’s possible to enjoy a tour of the House and Grounds year-round. We tailor tours to your requirements, welcome all ages, and offer a variety of packages.
Dorney Court lies to the west of London in a rural pocket of countryside flanked by the River Thames and, to the north, guarded from the M4 by farmland and the Jubilee River. The village of Dorney is the most southerly in Buckinghamshire with Dorney Common marking the county border. The picturesque towns of Maidenhead, Windsor and Eton are all within easy reach while Reading and High Wycombe are no more than a short drive away.
