Historic Houses Invitation to View Tour
June 19 @ 2:30 pm to 4:00 pm
Originally built in 1693, the Hall you see today was extended and built in the Palladian style in 1772 along with a large, landscaped garden designed by ‘Capability’ Brown. With most of the interiors of the Hall being designed by Joseph Bonomi, one of Packington’s most important rooms is the Pompeian Room originally designed to house the 4th Earl of Aylesford’s Etruscan vase collection. The Pleasure Grounds and landscaping surrounding the house were designed by ‘Capability’ Brown and today include a Japanese bridge, a rose garden and a newly restored walled garden.
Guided tour of the ground floor of the house and the gardens by owner Georgie Guernsey (garden tours may occasionally be taken by head gardener, Danni Hudson).
Tickets £25.00 including tea/coffee and cakes
