Tredegar House
Newport, NP10 8YW

Tredegar House is a 17th Century mansion built upon a 15th Century manor house set in some 90 acres of parkland, and was home to the Morgans, a very influential family in Welsh life. The house was finally sold by the family in 1951 and became a school, and eventually became a council property. The house is open to the public for tours during the summer months.

Tredegar House often run themed events, and are currently considering a Doctor Who tour through parts of the building that are not normally open to visitors. This will hopefully include the attics and cellars.

Admission: In 2008, £6.05 for the house tour

How to get here:

»

Walk: Head out of the shop into the yard, then through the Large Barn; then head through the gates to the other barns. Go through the gate to the gardens, and the entrance to the house for the tour is on the left.

Special note for photography: Due to copyright material on show in rooms, photography is not normally allowed except where permission has been given by a tour guide.

Originally the Master's private study, this room was converted into a 'high-tech' bathroom by Godfrey Morgan in 1905. It is called the Cow Bathroom because of the collection of cow ornaments on display.

Additional Notes:

»

The Dining Room was originally known as The New Parlour, to distinguish it from the one in the original stone house. It was a private dining room for the family, but became more generally used when the 'guest' dining in the Brown Room became the drawing room.

»

Unfortunately though it is on the tour, the dining room is one of those rooms in which photography is not allowed due to many items being on loan.

»

The dining table in this room is the one actually used in The Unicorn and the Wasp - as it was larger than the one originally here the production team kindly left it for the house!

»

The room was used as the library in Tooth and Claw (not the dining room, that's at Llansannor!); though the room was cleared, the paintings remained, so you can see the bottom of the painting above the fireplace in Tooth and Claw which is the same one the wasp is in front of in Unicorn and the Wasp.

»

The "dome" in Tooth and Claw is CGI - this room is actually on the ground floor!

Additional Notes:

The Gilt Room was designed to be the climax to the sequence of rooms guests would visit before bed after dinner to give them a lasting impression.
