The use of our staircase may be available for wedding photos to be taken at a cost of $20. Prior arrangement necessary.

* Rates were increased at the last Thompson House Committee's Annual General Meeting on the 24th of April, 2020.


Kitchen: Rates include the free use of the fully equipped kitchen.  Food can only be reheated, not cooked, and all House property must be cleaned and put back before your session ends. Failure to do so will incur a financial penalty and risk future bookings. 

Disabled access: There is a path to the front door and toilet designed to accommodate a wheelchair.  At this time the 2nd floor - Gallery, Office and Room 3 - can only be reached via stairs due to the age and historic status of the House.

Parking: Parking is free on the street and there are 2 disabled car parks right next to the front gate.

* Pictures of the kitchen, disabled access and parking are available on the Room Pictures page.
