Welbeck Abbey will open its doors to visitors over three seasons this year, giving unprecedented access to this stately home.
Now taking place in Spring, Early Summer and Late Summer, the Welbeck Abbey State Room Tours offer visitors the opportunity to see the beautiful interiors at Welbeck Abbey. The guided tours include six of the State Rooms that were used to entertain royalty, dignitaries and politicians.
Highlights from these rooms include a spectacular soaring Gothic plasterwork ceiling, the vibrantly coloured, tapestry lined ‘Red Drawing Room’, and the De László room, named after the famous society painter Philip de László who was a regular visitor.
The tours also include rooms used by the Cavalier and Royalist, William Cavendish in the 17th century. The tours lead through to an extraordinary curved corridor, library, and chapel – regarded as the greatest decorative ensemble from the Arts and Crafts movement in an aristocratic house in Britain.
As well as viewing the architecture and interior design in the Abbey, visitors will be able to see works from he historic Portland Collection of art in situ.
With just 16 tickets per tour and allowing ample time to spend in each room, The Welbeck Abbey State Room Tours offer a very special experience to explore this historical hidden gem.
Tickets for the 2022 Welbeck Abbey State Room Tours cost £30 per person, and are on sale now at www.harleygallery.co.uk
