Shaw House is a Grade I listed building and is one of the best preserved Elizabethan mansions in England, built in 1581. Over the centuries it has welcomed royalty, seen action during the Civil War, housed soldiers during World War II and schooled generations of local children.
Outside the House lay the beautiful Grade II listed grounds. Elements of the historic lost gardens can still be seen with some of the trees dating back to 1583 and earthworks from the 1630’s. Visitors are welcome to enjoy the grounds, picnic and have fun playing with our garden games.
At Shaw House we offer celebration and bereavement drinks receptions and a year-round programme of events and activities for all ages.
Before planning your visit please check the website for public opening days.
