Departs: 21st September 2017
Today we travel straight to Petworth House, a magnificent country house and park situated in West Sussex with an internationally important art collection. This vast late 17th-century mansion is set in a beautiful 283-hectare (700-acre) deer park, landscaped by 'Capability' Brown and immortalized in Turner's paintings.
Inside, the house contains the National Trusts finest collection of pictures, with numerous works by Turner, Van Dyck, Reynolds and Blake, ancient and Neo-classical sculpture, fine furniture and carvings by Grinling Gibbons. The servants' quarters contain fascinating kitchens, including a copper batterie de cuisine of more than 1,000 pieces and other service rooms.
