This rare and atmospheric Stuart house sits on the banks of the River Thames in Richmond.
The house is internationally recognised for its superb collection of paintings, furniture and textiles, largely acquired 400 years ago. It is reputed to be one of the most haunted houses in Britain.
Outside, the restored 17th-century garden includes a productive kitchen garden containing many heritage crops, the formal ‘Wilderness’, complete with summerhouses, and many beautiful spots perfect for a picnic
Whilst our original paintings undergo conservation work, artist and Royal Academician, Stephen Farthing has created some artwork specially for the Great Staircase.
