Renovations to our Historic House

[ News )

Vital Repairs

Between the 15 April and 24 May 2024, contractors will be undertaking essential maintenance to the rear of Pallant House, its parapet and its roof.

As a stunning example of 18th-century architecture, work is required from time to time to keep the historic Queen Anne Townhouse in good condition. We are working hard with Chichester District Council and the appointed contractors to make these improvements with minimum impact to the building, and in line with its listed status.

Repairs and decoration of woodwork, repointing of brickwork, lead work to the parapet and replacing the pill box door and roof will be undertaken from scaffolding erected across the height and width of the rear of the house.

The scaffolding will be erected in the courtyard in the area between the beech hedges and the back of the house. The rest of the garden will remain accessible and Pallant Café will be operating as normal.

We’re working hard to ensure the works do not disrupt the experience inside the gallery. The rooms of the historic house will be open according to the change over timetable below, as we prepare for the new season of exhibitions.


Gallery Change Over 23 April until 10 May

While we change over our exhibition spaces in preparation for the Shape of Things: Still Life in Britain, accessible areas and prices will change:

As much of the Gallery will be closed to visitors, you can pay what you wish by donation for admission. Our ground floor will be open together with some rooms in the historic house.

Our ground floor and most of the historic house will be open. There will be half-price admission during this period – £7.75 with Gift Aid.
