Stanmer House is a Grade I listed mansion west of the village of Falmer.
Stanmer House stands very close to Stanmer village and Church, within the Stanmer Park. Constructed by the French architect Nicholas Dubois in 1722 in a Palladian style for the Pelham family, it incorporates the remains of an earlier house, and was again altered in 1860.
Close to the University of Sussex campus, the house was used as a university administration building for some years while the campus was being built.
After undergoing extensive renovation it reopened in June 2006. It is available to hire for weddings and functions and is open to the public once a week on Tuesdays.
In 2009, the Willkommen Collective started a music festival at Stanmer House. The first event featured performances from The Leisure Society, Alessi’s Ark and more in Stanmer House and grounds. Now in its second year, the festival takes place on September 12th 2010 and has been named Foxtrot.
