Hope Scott Wing guests can pre-book private guided tours or talks with an external expert, which can be tailored to your party’s interests. You can request a themed tour with one of our brilliant volunteer guides, perhaps focussing on Scott’s poems and novels or the architecture of the building. Alternatively, you may like an exclusive curatorial tour around the house with Abbotsford’s Collections and Interpretation Manager, or you can invite her to join you in the luxurious comfort of the wing and listen to one of her fascinating talks on Scott, Abbotsford and our astounding collections.
Subject to availability, these private and bespoke group tours can be requested outwith Abbotsford’s public opening, allowing your party to have exclusive access to the house at a discounted rate. From December to February the house is closed to the public as we run an extensive programme of maintenance and conservation work across the historic interiors, however prearranged ' behind the scenes' tours of this work in progress may also be possible if booked by November 2019.
For further information or to book one of these tours please contact us on 01896 752 043 or email us.
