Events & Tours

Each year at Athelhampton we plan some special events and premium tours for you to enjoy..

We offer a great day out in Dorset, and if you are looking for things to do in Dorset, then why not consider one of our events, where we open Athelhampton to fabulous occasions, such as outdoor theatre, music or dance.

 

We also offer some exclusive tours for a handful of people, from 2 - 12 persons where you can find out more Athelhampton through its history, the people who lived here and see rooms and areas not usually seen by the public.
