Restoring history

The project to restore Mount Stewart is well underway. We're bringing back the elegance and charm of the house when it was home of the 7th Marchioness Edith, Lady Londonderry and her family in the early 20th century.

We will repair structural defects and improve heating, plumbing, drainage, lighting, fire systems and security. The restoration is being carried out by a large team of contractors and specialists.
