Details

Step back in time through the magnificant Tudor gatehouse into the dangerous world of Tudor politics. Home to the Bedingfield family since 1482 this stunning red-brick house charts their precarious history from medieval austerity to neo-Gothic Victorian comfort. As well as early Mortlake tapestries in the Queen's Room, Oxburgh houses beautiful embroidery by both Mary Queen of Scots and the famous Bess of Harwick. Panoramic views from the roof look out over the Victorian French parterre, walled orchard, kitchen garden and a Catholic chapel. There are quizzes, trails and dressing-up clothes to try on and the woodland is full of walks.
