Bushy House Open

Come and look inside Bushy House as part of Open House London 2022

The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) will be opening Bushy House and gardens to the general public between 10:00am to 4:30pm as part of Open House London 2022, entrance is free.

Normally Bushy House can only be observed from Bushy Park, but this unique opportunity offers visitors a chance to explore the history and scientific significance of this former royal residence, and see what it actually looks like inside.

Visitors will have the opportunity to visit various parts of the house, and the beautiful gardens, home to a descendent of Newton’s apple tree. There will also be historic and scientific displays plus our ever-popular family liquid nitrogen show and demonstrations about the wonderful world of measurement units.

Bushy House is located on Glazebrook Road in Teddington (TW11 0EB), with access via the Queens Road Gate. There will be no car parking on site, please make use of the nearby public carpark on Dora Jordan Road.

Please note that there is very limited access for people with disabilities and no dogs allowed (with the exception of guide and assistance dogs).

Refreshments will be provided by a local scout group.
