What to expect?
The day starts with a 5 mile walk from Compton taking in the spectacular dry valleys to the south of Uppark. Here you will encounter remoteness and solitude whilst being able to enjoy woodland and vistas out to the Solent.
After the walk we will have lunch followed by a trip around Uppark House. Perched on its vantage point high on the South Downs ridge, Uppark commands views as far south as the English Channel. It's Georgian interiors illustrate the comfort of life ‘upstairs’, in contrast with the ‘downstairs’ world of the servants. A highlight of our collection is one of the best examples of a 17th century doll's house in the country.
