Church Road, Newbury, Berkshire, RG14 2DR

Shaw House was built in 1581 by Newbury clothier Thomas Dolman. This fine Elizabethan building was home to successive Dolman families, the flamboyant Duke of Chandos and the Andrews, Eyre and Farquhar families. Over this time the House played host to several royal visitors, including Elizabeth I. During your visit you will wander through the most significant historic rooms of the house and learn about the stories from the past. There is also a garden trail where you can retrace some of the history of the hard work, innovation and ingenuity plus you can rifle through the Head Gardener’s desk!

Event not suitable for children under the age of 2.

This event took place in September 2014 and the entry is now archived.
