Dorney Court

What to See: Dorney Court

Dorney Court is one of the finest Tudor Manor Houses in the country, and is located a few miles beyond Windsor and Eton. Built in 1440, it has been lived in by the same family for over 450 years, and is still lived in today. Much of the house is open to the public, and is well worth a visit. Curiously, the first pineapple ever to be grown in England was grown at Dorney Court, and presented to Charles II in 1661.

Dorney Court has always been the manor house of Dorney village which was first recorded in the Doomsday Book.

Dorney Court is open to the general public every afternoon in August and also on both May Bank Holiday Mondays as well as the preceding Sundays.

Throughout the rest of the year, they are delighted to welcome Groups of 20 or more by appointment on Private or Connoisseurs‘ tours. They can also accommodate smaller Groups but a minimum charge may apply.

All tours of the House are guided and, on public open days, take up to an hour.  The House is open from 1.30pm and closes at 5pm.  Visitors also have free access to the ancient Norman church of St James the Less and are welcome to explore the Gardens, woodland and Park.

There is no need to book tickets in advance as you can simply pick them up from the front of the House on the day
