    An historic castle in the grand style, seat of the Manners family, Dukes of Rutland. Built on an earlier site, the castle today is an outstanding example of Regency work – begun in 1801 under James Wyatt. The Regent’s Gallery is his work, celebrating a visit by the Prince and completed under the Duke’s chaplain and Wyatt’s sons after a fire in 1816. Sumptuous interiors and excellent painting collection, including Poussins.


    Features: Statue Gardens with 17th century sculptures built into hillside. Duchess’ private Spring Gardens available for parties.
