Dating from 1702 the Hall’s beauty is matched by the magnificence of the gardens and the excellence of the picture, furniture and porcelain collections.

The Woolavington collection of sporting art is possibly the finest of its type in Europe and includes paintings by Stubbs, Ben Marshall and other artists renowned for works of this genre. Portraits, bronzes, 18th century English and French furniture and fine porcelain are among the treasures.

The formal gardens are continually being updated and developed. The Wild Gardens, a short walk across the Park, are planted along the course of a stream.
