A new story around every corner
Each room in the Hall tells a different story as you discover priceless Minton or Copeland china, fabulously detailed plasterwork and oil paintings of imperious Seymour ancestors, all collected over nearly 300 years of family history.
At the next turn, you will be surprised and delighted by evidence of the 20th and 21st century Hertford family including the famous mural on the South Staircase Hall commissioned by the 8th Marquess and created by the artist Graham Rust. The Temptation, which took 14 years to complete, features family members and pets. Can you spot the amusing trompe l’oeil?
Take a tour
A tour of the house and stables brings to life this busy working household over the centuries. Be transported back in time as you imagine carriages with footmen pulling up in front of the house, and guests stopping for a moment to take in the gentle rolling Warwickshire landscape before sweeping up the stone steps into a grand dinner in the State Dining Room.
Take a tour with one of our experts and hear about the secret passageways which the maids and footmen used as shortcuts to attend to the Hertford family and its guests, and marvel at how large Victorian or Edwardian house parties were catered for with only an ice house and outside larder to store food and produce.
