Valentines Mansion is an elegant grade II* listed country house - steeped in fascinating history, and rich in original and restored period features. Dating back to 1696, the mansion has been a family home to many including Elizabeth Tillotson, the niece of Oliver Cromwell.

Today Valentines Mansion and Gardens stands as a proud tribute to the past. Thanks to Heritage Lottery Funding the mansion was completely renovated and restored back to its original glory. Funding and donations from the public have also enabled the mansion to remain free to visit. As a valuable community and educational asset, it also regularly hosts educational visits for local school children.

It also provides studio space for several talented artists, who produce stunning work that is regularly showcased in the mansion and around London. The artists also deliver workshops and masterclasses at the mansion, as well as hold Open Studio events for the public to view their work for free and purchase original, local art.

Set on beautiful grounds with breathing-taking views across enchanting gardens, the mansion hosts weekly Open Days for visitors to come and explore its restored period rooms. From Victorian kitchens with cast iron fittings from 1860, a Georgian bed chamber and stained glass windows to ornate ceilings and a grand staircase - everything in the mansion has a story to tell.

The mansion is also available for hire, and hosts a range of events throughout the year including the fun-packed Mad Hatters Tea Party and Vintage Fair to sell-out art masterclasses and children’s activities – all of which generate vital funds for the up-keep and maintenance of the building.
