Admission to Dumfries House is by guided tour only. There is no charge for admission onto the Estate.
Saved by the intervention of HRH the Prince of Wales in 2007, Dumfries House combines the architecture of Robert Adam with the furniture of Thomas Chippendale and leading 18th century Scottish cabinet makers. The house and original contents, which include nearly 10% of Chippendale’s surviving work, represent one of the most important documents of the Scottish Enlightenment. Recently having been fastidiously restored to its original splendour, the house is open daily to the public from April-Oct and weekends only from Nov-March. You can take one of our expert guided tours around the stunning interiors and savour the delights of this now resplendent 18th century stately home.
The Dumfries House Estate retains much of the original 18th century landscape design and is open to walkers daily from dawn to dusk. The Main Gates close for cars at 6pm. Visitors can explore the beautiful setting with ancient trees, the Adam Bridge, river walks, a doo’cot and the wildlife.
