Close-up detail of a room in the Doll's House at Nostell Priory

The dolls’ house at Nostell Priory, in Yorkshire, was created around the same time as Nostell itself.

Visit with your family and have a good look at the dolls’ furniture. You’ll see that each piece of furniture has been crafted with great precision and the silver is even hallmarked.

This is the abode of some well-to-do dolls: tiny Chippendale furniture was made especially for the house and miniature paintings were created by famous artists of the day.
