NEW! Tour

The architectural evolution of Fulford Place

For the first time, we are offering tours that will inform visitors on the buildings, people and gardens that surround Fulford Place. Join us on this fascinating tour that explores the former 5.7-hectare (14-acre) grounds and learn stories and facts about the buildings still in existence today as well as those that existed in the past. This tour will delve into the sheer immensity of the property, now only 1.2 hectares (3 acres), and the buildings that once served the family and their lavish lifestyle. See how the landscape around Fulford Place was originally designed and how it has changed as the needs and interests of the family changed, and discover the people who ensured its immaculate upkeep.
