Following our successful art day last year, we are opening up the grounds of Wivenhoe House over the Heritage Open Day weekend.
Set in the grounds of Wivenhoe Park the hotel and surroundings were immortalised in canvas by renowned British artist John Constable, when he was commissioned by the then owner Major-General Francis Slater Rebow in 1816. The resulting painting now hangs in the National Gallery of Art, Washington DC.
- Saturday 9 September: 0900-1600. Wivenhoe House and Wivenhoe Park grounds will be open
- Sunday 10 September: 0900-1600. Wivenhoe Park grounds will be open
