Take an unforgettable trip to this breathtakingly beautiful National Trust property, nestled in the heart of Torpoint. An 18th-century mansion with a unique family history, the magic of Antony House caught the eye of world-renowned American film producer Tim Burton, who used this location as a set for his blockbuster film, Alice in Wonderland.
Lovers of historic architecture can explore the unique beauty of the mansion, built with silver-grey stone and believed to be one of the finest surviving Queen Anne buildings in the South West. With examples of period tapestries, textiles and furniture on display throughout the property, some of the most famous portraits in the world, including Sir Joshua Reynolds’ iconic painting of Charles I during his trial, feature throughout this fascinating building.
With sweeping river views, artistic sculptures and sweet-smelling camellias and magnolias, the tranquil gardens are a visitor attraction in their own right, featuring the intricate Knot Garden, the Woodland Garden and the seasonal Summer Garden.
Located just six miles from Plymouth train station and accessible by car via the Torpoint Ferry, this property provides free parking just 120 yards away, disabled access and toilet facilities.
Visit this much-loved national treasure and enjoy a cup of something warming in the tea room, browse the gift shop and take a little bit of Antony House home with you, or follow in Alice’s footsteps and stroll through the mansion and gardens to experience the magic for yourself.
