Killerton House and Gardens

A fine example of 18th Century architecture, Killerton House is home to a vast collection of period costumes - 9,000 items in all - spanning the fashions of the past 200 years. The gardens are the star of the show at Killerton. Beautiful all year round, they put on a wonderful display of rhododendrons and magnolias, set against the backdrop of Devon's rolling countryside. Open-air theatre is hosted here during the summer.

Really great for out of season walks - acres of woodland on the hill behind the house - discover that the hill is actually an iron age fort ! make sure you wear wellies at this time of year !

One of Devon's great estates, Killerton was given to the National Trust by Sir Richard Acland. The famous garden was created by John Veitch and is beautiful all year round.
