Group Visits

Red Drawing Room


We are delighted to welcome group visits and coach tours to Hopetoun House.

During our Open Season* we offer special prices for group bookings of 15+ guests as follows:

  • £11.00 per person for a free-flow visit – the guests will be given an introduction and welcome to Hopetoun House by our guides and then will be free to explore the House at their own pace, or with your own guide. We recommend that you allow at least 1 hour to go around the house.  There are interpretation sheets in all of the rooms and guides are available to answer questions.  Translation sheets are available in French, German, Spanish and Italian.
  • £12.50 per person for a guided tour – the guests will be given an introduction and welcome to Hopetoun House by our guides in the front hall and then will be led around the house on a guided tour.  All tours are given in English and last for approximately 1 hour.  If the group have any specific interests, such as art, architecture or Outlander, please let us know in advance and our guide will tailor the tour accordingly.

Both options include access to our extensive grounds and there is no charge for the driver or for any guides or tour leaders accompanying the group.   Our prices include VAT and assume that the final confirmed number in the group will be +15 people.

*Open Season is Friday 15 April until Sunday 25 September 2022, Open 5 days per week (Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday), 11am – 5pm (last admission at 4pm). We are closed on Tuesday and Wednesday.
