An elegant example of a Palladian-style manor house in red brick, dating from the 1660’s, Euston Hall has been home to the Dukes of Grafton for over 350 years. The newly-restored building contains a wonderful collection of Stuart art and 17th and 18th Century furniture and objets d’ art.
The landscaped gardens feature 17th Century designs, overlaid by 18th Century ideas and include work by three of Britain’s most famous landscapers; John Evelyn, William Kent and ‘Capability’ Brown. Brown created the picturesque waterways, which were restored to their original appearance in 2013.
The gardens lead into an expansive park, featuring radial walks, Kent’s Temple folly, the Church of St Genevieve’s and a restored watermill on the river Blackbourn.
A tranquil and fascinating place to visit for those interested in art, history and quintessentially English landscapes.
