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. Open Sunday – Friday 10:00 – 16:00 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).
