Tours last approximately 1 hour, and take in all of the main reception rooms in the mansion, 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 State Bedroom on the first floor which was prepared for a visit by King George IV.
