Visit Boughton for a magnificent day out

boughton websiteBoughton is one of Britain’s grandest and best-preserved stately homes. As well as the splendours of the House, you can also enjoy the 18th century landscaped gardens, the woodlands and a grand country park.

Boughton contains one of Britain’s most outstanding collections of fine art, with a superb display of furniture, tapestries, art, porcelain and carpets adorning the State Rooms and Halls. Visitors can view a magnificent range of paintings by great artists, including The Adoration of the Shepherds by El Greco, Gainsbourgh’s portrait of Mary Montagu, grisailles and  portraits by Van Dyck,  and Breaking Cover by John Wootton.

Boughton has some of the best preserved baroque State Rooms in the British Isles. Here you can walk through grand apartments of contrasting character decorated in extravagant yet elegant taste with the finest artworks of the House’s golden era. Within a few steps you will see the finest French furniture from Boulle, enjoy beautiful Mortlake tapestries and 16th century carpets from the Middle East.

Once you’ve had your tour of the House, you can step out into the surrounding country park. Its tranquil delights have been carefully restored over the last decade and now there are wide sculptured lawns to survey, serene lakes, waterways, woods and avenues of trees to be strolled down.

Plan your visit today and see why Boughton is widely regarded as a flagship of Britain’s national heritage.
