Audio Guide System

An Audio Guide System is used on all tours and allows our lecturers to talk to participants at a normal voice level via a microphone. You are able to listen via a comfortable earpiece and a small receiver. As a result you do not have to stay close to a lecturer, straining to hear. Equally convenient, you can walk at will through a room or building listening from a good distance, or not, should personal preference dictate. In essence, it gives you greater physical independence while remaining part of the group and without having to strain to hear. It is also fully compatible with ‘loop’ system hearing aids.

Comments from previous clients on the benefits of the system include:

   ‘The Audio system utterly made my holiday’
   Mrs B, Hampshire

   ‘The Audio Guide system was a great success’
   Mr W, London

   ‘I found the Audio Guide a great advantage on the tour’
   Mrs L, Warwickshire

And None Shall Compare

UK
Friday 7 September 2018
Thomas Chippendale exercised astonishing influence on his contemporaries, partly through
The Gentleman and Cabinet-Maker’s Director, the first text of its kind solely devoted to the furniture and furnishings of eighteenth century interiors in England, resulting in his illustrious international reputation today. Where better to celebrate the 300th anniversary of Chippendale’s birth in 1718 than Firle Place, Sussex, home to the ‘Panshanger Cabinets’ - two of the finest pieces ever produced by his workshop.
