Discover the house at Polesden Lacey

The house the Grevilles bought in 1906 was practically a new building. They employed Mewès and Davis, the architects of the Ritz hotel, to help transform the interiors of their new party house. From the stunning décor in the gold Saloon to state-of-the-art conveniences, no expense was spared. One thing's for sure - Mrs Greville wanted her house to impress.
