Mount Edgcumbe House was originally built in the 1500s and extensively restored after World War Two when it suffered significant bomb damage.  It is jointly owned by Cornwall Council and Plymouth City Council and is one of the regions most popular historic tourist destinations.
The House and Earl's Garden (admission charged) is open Sunday to Thursday and Bank Holiday Monday between 11am and 4.30pm, April to September.  Group bookings can also be arranged in March and October.  The house is available for civil wedding and civil partnership ceremonies plus conferences.
The wider park is open year round, daily from 8am to dusk and is free to the public. The free area of the park includes the National Camellia Collection, the majority of the formal gardens and the Orangery Restaurant.
The recently completed £2 million renovation project which has seen the disused service buildings on the estate brought back o life will now accommodate the Stables café, a shop and plant sales centre so visitors will be able to recreate a taste of the beautiful Mount Edgcumbe grounds in their own garden.
