The Rickyard in Walpole Park houses Pitzhanger’s education space and kiosk cafe.

The Rickyard is situated in Walpole Park, and houses Pitzhanger’s education space and Pitzhanger Pantry, a kiosk café. You can find the Rickyard beside the playground, a few minutes from Pitzhanger through the back gates or walled garden.

Pitzhanger Pantry

Pitzhanger Pantry serves delicious and reasonably priced food and drinks, including tea and coffee, juice, sandwiches and cakes. We run a range of workshops and classes in the Rickyard all year round, details of which can be found in What’s On

The Rickyard Classroom

Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery Trust and Ealing Council hold workshops, classes and events in the Rickyard’s classroom and courtyard.

The Rickyard education space is available for hire – it is a flexible indoor space and courtyard, and is suitable for classes, workshops and parties.

Bees at the Rickyard

The Rickyard is also home to Walpole Park’s collection of bees! See if you can find them next time you’re there…

It’s our #OpenSunday this weekend! Join us for storytelling, tours and creative activities, coinciding with the #BigJubileeLunch in #WalpolePark!

Book onto our 11am or 1pm session to meet Eliza Soane who will take you on an exciting trail through the Manor to learn about the Soane family and everyday life at Pitzhanger. Join her in her hunt for lost thimbles, find out what Sir John Soane might catch in the lake, and guess what’s growing in the kitchen garden – led by storyteller Judy Preece. 

You can also get creative by making your own ‘inchie’ small work of art with @sarahtonin_seeker.
