Syon House in Middlesex is the London home of the Duke of Northumberland, whose family were granted the former monastic site at the end of the 16th century. The Tudor mansion was remodelled by Robert Adam for the 1st Duke in 1760s and the interiors are an architectural tour de force – the great hall may be Adam’s finest classical work.
Features include 30-acre gardens within a 200-acre park transformed by ‘Capability’ Brown, and a stunning domed conservatory designed by Charles Fowler in the 1820s.
