Built in the 1720s for Great Britain’s first Prime Minister, Sir Robert Walpole, Houghton Hall remains one of England’s finest Palladian houses. Houghton was built with an eye to reflecting the wealth, taste, and power of its owner.
Winner of the Christie's and HHA ‘Garden of the Year Award’, the 5 acre walled garden has become one of Houghton’s most popular attractions, and the garden and grounds also feature an impressive collection of contemporary sculptures by world renowned artists as well as St Martin's Church.
This year Houghton Hall hosts a major exhibition by internationally-celebrated Turner Prize-winning British Landscape artist, Richard Long, which runs until 26th October 2017 (selected days) and is the largest show since Long’s retrospective at the Tate in 2009.
