On the tour, encounter lavishly decorated rooms in early 19th century style, including the grand oval Saloon which is considered the focal point of the whole house.
The tour also ventures up the beautiful 'imperial' staircase, where you can see the ornate State Bedroom, which was decorated for a visit of King George IV and rarely used, so it has stayed in fantastic condition.
The tour concludes in the vast basement, which gives an intriguing insight to the hidden world beneath the stairs, described as the engine which runs the house above.
