Labassa Mansion Tours (2018)

Experience the glorious Labassa Mansion and discover its intriguing social history.


Labassa is an outstanding Victorian era mansion with opulent architectural features. The mansion was redeveloped in the French Second Empire style by German born architect, John A. B. Koch, who remodelled the house into a thirty-five room mansion. The interior features gilt embossed wallpapers, ornate stained glass and a rare trompe l’oeil ceiling.

While visitors today see a grand mansion, Labassa was once divided into flats (including a bedroom in a cupboard under the stairs!) occupied by an eclectic succession of artists, musicians and bohemians.

Come along and immerse yourself in Labassa’s history at one of our open days and enjoy a tour, or a devonshire tea in our delightful tea rooms.

Tea Rooms are open 10.30am – 3.30pm

If you are in the area, our National Trust property Rippon Lea is holding their Super 70’s Exhibition.

The next Open Day is Sunday 18th November 2018. Book your open day tickets HERE
