nSBRC - Self Build and Renovation

About Us


The dream.

Your design, your build, your home.

The National Self Build & Renovation Centre will help you every step of the way.

We are the UK’s only permanent visitor centre designed specifically to meet the needs of self builders, renovators and home improvers.

We have 3 full size exhibition houses on permanent display, as well as interactive educational zones guiding you through every stage of a homebuilding project. 

Explore different types of foundations, traditional and modern wall systems, the latest finishes and much more in our New Build Journey.

Our full-scale Renovation House takes you through the journey of a major renovation project tackling many common issues that you will encounter when improving an existing property.

The large Trade Village showcases over 250 exhibitors, offering the latest innovative products and services.

Our aim is to inspire, educate and provide impartial advice.

The NSBRC is open 6 days a week (Tuesday-Sunday) and entry is free!
