Your visit

Grange Park Opera is very much a family. We hope to see you in the summer, when enjoyment will be in full swing. Guests arrive early to wander in the historic walled gardens, champagne glass in hand, and a convivial atmosphere reigns: the city seems far away. A short walk through the ancient orchard – passing a 300-year-old mulberry tree – takes you to the five-tier opera house which we’ve named The Theatre in the Woods.

How to get here: KT24 6AN

 

Only 23 miles from London by the Surrey Hills, Horsley station is just a mile away.

Picnics & dining

For the all-important long interval, guests may dine in one of our restaurants, or hire a private pavilion or just fling down a rug by the crinkle-crankle wall.
