The guide told me that there is a real Canaletto in the entrance hall, tucked in a corner. Of that I remember but not much else. Alas, they don’t allow photos inside and there were no gardens to photo so I can’t really remember a reason to visit (it was the end of the day and we had time to squeeze it in, which was our reason for going).
Having just resorted to reading Simon Jenkins’ “England’s 1000 Best Houses”, he has reminded me that on the stair is a collection of paintings depicting Mexican individuals, stolen on the command of Charles I from passing ships. Very interesting indeed.
Perhaps I need to start buying guide books where photography isn’t allowed….
