Fonthill Open Days 2024

Old Fonthill Abbey Grounds

The grounds of Old Fonthill Abbey will be open to the public on Sundays 5th and 19th May from 10.30 – 4.30, giving the opportunity for visitors to enjoy bluebell woods, rhododendrons, lakeside walks and Abbey views. There will be a barbecue (with Buttlings bangers) homemade cakes and soup.

The openings are in aid of the Cure Parkinson’s Trust and local charities. Entry donation, we suggest £10 per adult. Polite dogs are welcome. Unfortunately in the event of very high winds, if Stourhead NT closes, the Fonthill grounds will also close. Please check the NT website.
