A wealth of places to visit in the local area........
In the 1750's Ralph Verney set out to create a country house of such grandeur it would outdo all his rivals.
Today the interiors that remain are some of the most ambitious and lavish ever created in the 18thcentury. With links to the English Civil War and a family connection to Florence Nightingale its certainly worth a visit.
Built by Ferdinand Rothschild in 1874 to entertain the fashionable elite it houses a magnificent collection of objects and fine art both old and modern.
There are beautiful gardens to explore, aviarys and parkland dotted with statues and modern art. Activities and exhibitions throughout the year.
