Enjoy Cream Teas and Tours as Northwood House opens its doors to the public.

If you are fascinated by Island history, then a visit to Northwood House in Cowes on Sunday 16th February might be the perfect way to spend some time on what is normally a cheerless winter weekend.

Northwood House Charitable Trust are holding an open day between 10.30am and 4.30pm which includes the chance to take a tour and find out more about the history of the iconic grade II* manor built in 1838 by George Ward, the original founder of Red Funnel.

You can also find out about the House’s role as a convent, as well as a venue for Royal parties in Victorian times. Learn about the part it played in two World Wars and why it might be the Island’s most haunted building!
