‘Upstairs Downstairs’ tour
Available all year
Duration 1 hour
During the Indian summer of Britain just before World War I, the Stanford family was living at Preston Manor with their 15 servants. The house remains as if they were still there. This tour will immerse you into the intimacy of a wealthy Edwardian family.
Also available in easy English, French and German and as a costumed tour
Available all year (evenings only from 5pm)
Duration 90 minutes
During your tour, your group will hear spooky tales of the ghosts that have haunted Preston Manor through the ages, including Sister Agnes the medieval nun, the disembodied hand, the White Lady and the elegant Lady in Grey who descends the grand staircase with nowhere to go. You will learn about the creepy doors in the Manor that lock themselves, the lights that turn off for no reason and the ghostly hand seen holding onto a doorknob!

Preston Manor is a 15 minute drive from the Royal Pavilion estate (where the Royal Pavilion and Brighton Museum are located) and therefore a visit to two or more attractions can easily be achieved on the same afternoon or morning, or in the same day including a break for tea at the Royal Pavilion.
