Removed and renewed: 150 years of change at Arlington

  • 13 — 24 July 2015

1865 was an important year in the history of Arlington, a year that saw a wedding, building work and the birth of an heiress. Over the next 150 years the estate went from family home to wildlife haven to visitor attraction. During the Festival of Archaeology the way the estate changed over those 150 years will be highlighted in a number of ways. Numerous events happening throughout the fortnight including daily walks and talks around the grounds. This will tie into a series of property wide events lasting all year.


Normal admission costs. No cost for event. See website for details.
