Description

Corsham Court is one of England's finest stately homes and is based upon an Elizabethan Manor dating from 1582.

The interiors are laid out as a suite of magnificent Georgian Staterooms, the work of leading 18th and 19th Century architects. Their brief was to properly display the famous Methuen/Sanford art collection featuring Old Masters by Van Dyck, Carlo Dolci and Lippi. Important works still hang as intended alongside Adams Brothers' pier glasses in the unique tripple cube picture gallery with ornate ceiling by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown. Extensive formal gardens with Brown/Repton landscape beyond complete the contemporary setting.

Opening times:
