The House

Charleston front door (c) Charleston Trust

Charleston is presented to look as it did when the family lived here.

To protect the atmosphere and collection, entry to the house is timed and limited. During popular times you may not be able enter the house straightaway. On very busy days we can sell out of tickets altogether. There are plenty of other things to see and do at Charleston while you wait.

To guarantee your entry to the house, book your tickets in advance online

We regret we cannot take any bookings over the phone.
