National Trust Polesden

Polesden Lacey

‘This is a delicious house…’ remarked Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, on her honeymoon at Polesden Lacey. This country retreat, with glorious views across the Surrey Hills, was home to formidable Edwardian hostess Mrs Greville. Marvel at the glittering Saloon, designed to impress kings and maharajahs, or admire her extensive art and porcelain collections.

The gardens offer something every season, including climbing roses, herbaceous borders, and a winter garden. There are four waymarked walks around the wider estate. For a quieter visit, come on a weekday morning (March to October) or winter weekend.

Opening days/times:

Open daily, grounds from 10:00 and house from 11:00. Close at 17:00 (16:00 close during November, December and January).
