This beautifully maintained Manor is fun to walk through. It's billed as a sort of haunted house so it's the kind of place you can take the kids to and let their imagination soar. Plus it's fun for adults because of the art and history. There are exhibits on the lower floor and then you can walk through the house... More

Well, this was a wonderful visit to see Father Christmas. The room we saw him in was beautifully decorated. Father Christmas looked very much the real deal. I loved the way he and his elf chatted to the children: it felt very gentle and not at all rushed. The conversation was bit different to the usual "have you been good,... More

My children were so excited about coming to see Santa at Preston manor and they weren't disappointed. We were greeted by lovely friendly staff. They had made a great effect of decorating the manor. I would highly recommend coming to see Santa as it was truly magical and the most traditional looking santa id ever seen. The kids were blown... More

What can I say?... This splendid house was decorated beautifully and tastefully in a Victorian style, the friendly staff all around the Stanfords home were making sure we had a very memorable visit! Plenty of activities for us all to do as we waited like dressing up in costumes down in the servants hall , informative tours of the upper... More

I visited this location to catch the last day of the Doreen Valiente Exhibition. it was good, and the house was awesome too. The speakers with examples of people who actually lived in the house were interesting.

Well worth a visit to this stately home. not only is it full of history and the standard antiques you find in stately homes but it is also reportedly haunted. I think Most Haunted actually filmed a show here and had an experience with the ghost of a maid who's body was found on the property. You can also do... More

The staff at Preston Manor are outstanding; full of information, helpful and friendly. The lovely thing about this attraction is that you can wander round by yourself, in your own time and nothing is out of bounds or roped off, they have simply placed pine cones on anything you mustn't sit on! The kitchens downstairs are of particular interest and... More

As locals we drive past everyday and this time we decided we must go in. It's beautiful inside, lots of history about the area, the staff are fantastic with excellent knowledge. It's your Brighton Downton Abbey! We learnt a lot and recommend it to everyone. Shame it's not open all year, a good place to go in the winter! Even... More

I've been taken by a native English friend of mine and I enjoyed every second of the visit. The house is very interesting inside and it has a lovely park outside, where you can sit on a bench and watche the marvellous landscape. Absolutely worthwhile.

Preston Manor is a little gem of a place, just minutes from Brighton town centre by car, (free parking available on site) half price for Brighton residents when shown proof of address. but reasonable priced otherwise. We had access to virtually the whole house, amazed by the abundance of history, and how well laid out it all is. well worth... More
