Houghton Hall Description

Begun in 1721, the architects of this great Palladian mansion were James Gibbs and Colen Campbell. The interior was designed and furnished in lavish style by William Kent, to display the fantastic collection of pictures, sculptures, china, tapestries and other furnishings, which Sir Robert Walpole collected during his parliamentary career.

Your Reviews of Houghton Hall

Anne Bradley (26 August 2008)

I visited the place yesterday, and had a very enjoyable time. The gardens and museum had a lot of interesting displays, and the house was beautifully presented. The guides were particularly helpful, and were able to give us details of the items in the rooms. The soldier museum was very pleasing, and the information leaflet was of great value in understanding the scenes. Altogether, a place I would recommend for a visit by a family, or adults seeking a stately home experience.
