A family home at the centre of rural Shropshire life, Dudmaston also houses one of the most important private collections of modern art in Britain. This is a house of many contrasts, lived in by the same family for over 875 years.

Visiting the family home

For its long history, a mixture of modern thinking, tastes and culture have shaped the hall and the wider estate. Today, the hall is home to the Hamilton-Russell family and continues to revolve around the rhythms of life in the local community.

On your visit to Dudmaston Hall, wander round the traditional rooms, from the panelled Entrance Hall to the sunlit Library with views over the garden and Big Pool. Relax and make yourself at home in the cosy Oak Room and flick through the family photo album.
