This Heritage Open Day experience exclusive talks, trails and exhibitions – all for free!

Whether you’re viewing the historic Castle at your own leisure, or exploring our picturesque grounds and gardens – there is plenty to keep you and your entire family occupied all day. From highlights of the Powderham Collections, to our treasured Pets Corner and play area, or simply getting a glimpse of the fallow deer in the ancient Deer Park, Powderham promises an inspiring trip to all our visitors.

Exclusively for 2023, we’ve partnered with multi-award winning animation studio Aardman to showcase beautifully crafted sets used in productions of Wallace and Gromit. Alongside our Heritage Open Days event, we’re also joined by Aardman Senior Model Maker, Jim Parkyn, who will guide us through his process of creating iconic and beloved characters that we’ve all seen on our screens. (Booking in advance for Jim’s talks is recommended as space is limited. Please note Aardman Model Making Sessions are £5 per person).


Further information regarding our Heritage Open Days Talks will follow shortly.

Please note that while we are open for free during Heritage Open Days, there will be a small charge for parking.

This event took place in September 2023 and the entry is now archived.
