Arundells to re-open on 24th March

Arundells, the former home of ex Prime minister Sir Edward Heath will re-open to the public for another three years from 24th March.

Wiltshire Council’s planning officers granted permission for the house and gardens to open in time for the Easter holidays.

The Friends of Arundells will now be allowed to trial a free-flow system on Thursdays where visitors can see Sir Edward’s personal memorabilia.Volunteers will be in each room to tell visitors about the history of the house and the life of its owner.

On Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, the trustees will open for pre-booked guided tours.

If you are able to volunteer as a guide guide to help with the “free-flow” Thursdays, contact The Friends of Arundells on 01258 471851 or visit
