Appuldurcombe House is now closed until Easter 2015. Unfortunately, we have not yet finalised the details of an agreement which will allow free admission to Appuldurcombe House, and consequently a small admission charge is in place for all visitors. We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this delay and for changes to the advertised opening times and ongoing admission charge.
If you’re planning to visit the Isle of Wight, take a trip to Appuldurcombe House and don’t forget the nearby falconry centre for a fun filled family day out.
The shell of Appuldurcombe, once the grandest house on the Isle of Wight, is an important example of English baroque Architecture: the 1701 east front has now been restored. It stands in 'Capability' Brown-designed grounds. An exhibition of photographs and prints depict the house and its history.
You can also visit the Freemantle Gate (part of the 1770s neo-Classical addition to the estate) on the nearby public footpath, and the adjacent falconry centre (not under the care of English Heritage - extra charges apply).
