Royal Stuart furniture, art, silver, tapestries...
Come and see the last survivors of furniture from Whitehall and Hampton Court Palaces, among the most expensive status objects of their time.
Important 16th and early 17th century figures in England and Europe are on display, along with paintings by Van Dyck, Reynolds, Gainsborough, Lely, Kneller, Larkin, Vigée-Lebrun and others.
The silver furniture in the King’s Room survived the fate of the other solid silver sets from the court of Louis XIV of France, melted down to fund military campaigns.
The tapestries at Knole are some of the finest in the National Trust’s collection. They include 17th century works for the royal palaces by Reydams and Spiering.
