Intriguing interiors

The artistic glamour of the entrance hall

Step inside the honey-coloured stone walls, and discover the hidden treasures of Farnborough Hall, remaining largely unaltered since the 18th century. It is a personal collection containing exquisite sculptures, porcelain and artwork by Panini and Canaletto. Admire the grand staircase leading up to the library, with its 18th century skylight dome and wall decoration, all part of the grand design.
