The Charleston Trust welcomes group bookings and is able to provide groups with exclusive access to the house and walled garden.
Group visits take place Wednesday – Saturday outside our normal opening hours (usually in the mornings, but we can accommodate evening tours by special arrangement*).
All group visits are by guided tour only and we offer a choice of tours to appeal to different interests. We can also arrange refreshments for you to enjoy before your tour.
All groups must book their visits in advance. If you are planning to visit Charleston as a group of ten or more we recommend that you come outside of regular opening hours and pre-booking is essential. If you do come while we are open to the public there is a strong probability that, regrettably, we will be unable to admit your group.
Please download our group visit information leaflet or email email@example.com and we will send a form in reply. After you have returned your enquiry form to us we will contact you to discuss your booking.
When you are ready to confirm your group visit, we ask for a non-refundable deposit of 50% of the total cost to secure the booking.
The remaining balance is then payable anytime up to and including the day of your visit. Final numbers must be confirmed no later than 10 working days before your visit. If fewer people arrive on the day, you will still be charged for the confirmed final number.
Availability for groups is limited. We advise you to get in touch early to avoid disappointment. Prices start from £9.00 per person.
*Due to low light levels at certain times of year, evening visitors may not have as clear a view of some of the paintings than those viewing the house during daylight hours.
There is free parking for coaches on site.
