The Pope's Cabinet 

A new book – 125 Treasures from the Collections of the National Trust – shares the stories behind some remarkable objects and takes readers on a journey through time, starting with Roman sculpture and ending with 20th-century design. Stourhead is home to three of these treasures, including the Pope's Cabinet. Find out what makes it so special.
