Interior Worlds: Thomas Chippendale at Nostell
Explore how Chippendale helped create bespoke interiors and objects for his ambitious client Rowland Winn in the opulent state rooms. Immerse yourself in a world of fashion, luxury, innovation and the rollercoaster life of a top-end designer.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
Much of what you see today is just as Chippendale left it, with stars of the show including a full suite of rooms in the Chinese style, the iconic library desk and the most expensive mirror in the collection. As you explore these ornate showrooms, you'll unpack the stories of individual pieces to discover how they were created, sourced and transported, opening up a vibrant 18th century world of ruthless social ambition, dynamic entrepreneurship and world-changing global trade.

What is Gift Aid?
Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.
Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:
- Gift Aid Admission
- Standard Admission
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.
Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:
|Amount paid by visitor||£11.00||£10.00|
|Tax refund from Government*||£2.75||£0.00|
|Total received by the National Trust||£13.75||£10.00|
*Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
Access to Parkland is free. There is a £4 car parking charge (free for National Trust members).
- Assistance dogs are welcome.
