Important notice -

Calke Abbey is open every day, and you no longer need to book your visit in advance. Our quieter times are weekday afternoons.

At Calke Abbey, discover the tales of an eccentric family who amassed a vast collection of hidden treasures. Visit the beautiful, yet faded, walled gardens and explore the orangery, auricula theatre and the kitchen gardens. Escape into the ancient and fragile habitats of Calke Park and its National Nature Reserve.

With peeling paintwork and overgrown courtyards, Calke Abbey tells the story of the dramatic decline of a country house estate. The house and stables are little restored, with many abandoned areas vividly portraying a period in the 20th century when numerous country houses did not survive to tell their story.

An outdoor photography exhibition set against the autumnal backdrop of Calke’s Walled Kitchen Garden and Orangery, featuring winners of the International Garden Photographer of the Year competition.
This winter, treat your little ones to a world of adventures at Calke Abbey on the Percy the Park Keeper's winter wander trail.
