In the main hall there is a famous wooden chair in which King Charles II sat as did Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother (who famously said ‘and now a Queen has sat here’) – and in June 2014 HRH The Princess Royal while in East Grinstead to unveil the statue of Sir Archibald McIndoe, the world renowned pioneering plastic surgeon which stands outside the college, sat in the chair further extending its fame.

Admission during 2015 is £4.00 for adults and £1.00 for children, which includes a personal guided tour. Groups can also make appointments throughout the year with refreshments if desired.
