Invitation to View 2019

Invitation to View has recently merged with Historic Houses. The scheme will continue to run in just the same way, but we will be switching to the Historic Houses ticketing company, Tyg Tickets, from 1 January 2019. Our website will be updated and bookings for 2019 tours will open on that date. A pdf of the 2019 brochure will be available on the website soon.

If you’re on our mailing list you’ll receive a copy of the brochure directly from the printers. We can’t guarantee that it will arrive before Christmas, but it should be delivered before the opening of bookings on 1 January.

  • A chance to go inside historic halls and magnificent manors… Invitation to View offers a rare glimpse inside houses and gardens seldom seen by the public.

  • Each house, each group, each visit is as individual as its owner and as unpredictable as the weather…

  • So often, grandiose castles and cathedrals fade from the memory… By contrast, though, our Invitation to View houses have been unforgettable.

  • I would like to take this opportunity to thank the property owners for such wonderful visits. The owners have been very helpful and informative and the food supplied was above anything we were expecting.
