The Art of Design

A new set of displays are on show at Goddards until 28 June.

Discover some of the secrets behind the design of the house and gardens - from beautifully designed wallpaper to windows, ponds to paths.

Turn your hand to design too and sit and sketch a while, borrowing one of our free sketch pads and pencils.
