The house at Calke Abbey will re-open on Tuesday 1 March.  

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.

New to photography or fancy the opportunity to share ideas with likeminded others? Why not join one of our Park Guides on a walk of the estate, to find out their tips and tricks for capturing Calke in all its glory.
