Rare opportunity to visit Bushy House and see the work of the NPL

Bushy House and gardens will be open to the public on Saturday 16th September, it was announced today

Normally, the historic house, which dates back to the 1660’s can only be seen from the adjoining Bushy Park.

Bushy House was the residence of William, Duke of Clarence (William IV) and his mistress Dora Jordan from 1797, and was offered to the Royal Society by Queen Victoria in 1900 as a location to establish the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) .

Visitors will have a rare chance to see the rooms and gardens of Bushy House, including historic photos and artefacts.

The science museum will be open and there will be a drone demonstration linked to the NPL’s Earth Observation work. There will also be an opportunity to learn how solar panels work and the popular liquid nitrogen show.

The doors will be open from 11am and last entry is at 15.30. Entry is free but a ticket is required.
