Clocks

The Sun Clock at Anglesey Abbey

Anglesey Abbey is famous for its collection of English and French clocks.

It takes around two hours a week to wind-up the thirty six clocks which are on display.

 

Paintings

The Lower and Upper Galleries house the majority of the works of art collected by Lord Fairhaven.

His interest in Windsor Castle shows in the vast number of paintings he collected of this subject.

 

Silver

Christened in a punch bowl?

As an avid collector of silverware, Lord Fairhaven placed pieces throughout the house.

Special highlights include a chest in the Upper Gallery and the silver service in the Dining Room.

 

Conservation

The house is closed over the winter months for conversation work.

During this time the house and artefacts will get a deep clean.

The house will re-open on 11 March.

 

 

Conserving the Newmarket Corridor

During the winter we are conserving the Newmarket Corridor which includes Lord Fairhaven's bed and bathroom, and the bedroom where HRH The Queen Mother stayed when she visited Anglesey Abbey.
