Free Heritage Open Day

  • Waverley Abbey House (CWR) GU9 8EP (map)


Every year in September, thousands of hidden, historic places open their doors to the public for free during the Heritage Open Day event, to celebrate their fantastic history, architecture and culture.

This year the main theme is Extraordinary Women, so why not take this chance to explore who the women were who left their mark on Waverley Abbey House?

Learn about our rich history dating back to the reign of King George I, discover the remarkable role that Waverley played during the First World War and walk in the footsteps of some famous visitors.

Find out what happens nowadays at Waverley Abbey House and enjoy a free day out with family or friends in the beautiful Surrey countryside.

Free guided tours of the house will take place throughout the day and a history display will be available on the first floor*.

Our café will be open for delicious homemade food, cakes and refreshments.
