House & Gardens Accompanied Tour Only

Hilton Park is not a hotel. It is still a private and unique historic home. A member of the family will take the house and gardens tour throughout the year for groups of 10 or more people with prior arrangement.

The tour brings to life nearly 300 years of one family. Beginning with an introduction to the history of the house and the Madden family, visitors are guided through the rooms where nearly 300 years of ancestral portraits still grace the walls. Visitors will experience the history of the house as it passed from generation to generation, a family of philanthropists, adventurers, politicians, soldiers, before being led round the historic gardens and walled kitchen garden.

If you are a special interest group or just wishing to organise a larger tour group please enquire via email or telephone to book your date. We are happy to accommodate larger groups also.

Accessibility

Generally, access to an historic house comes with its fair share of challenges, especially as the building is so old. Access into the house is not level and there is no lift inside. 

We try to accommodate in every way possible, so please contact us in advance of visiting to help us understand your specific needs regarding accessibility.
