The Georgian Private Apartments, known as the Cumberland Suite, are closed for a major refurbishment programme. We are re-instating William Kent’s wonderful 1730’s designs and improving the existing art display and lighting systems. We are also refurbishing a room called the ‘Large Light Closet’ which has never been open to the public before. In November 2014 the whole suite will re-open as The Cumberland Art Gallery. Key artworks from the Royal Collection will be on display - a 'must see' for art lovers!
Please note that the Tennis Court in the gardens is only open to visitors during summer months.
2 November 2014 - 1 February 2015: the Gardens Exhibition, off the Garden Shop, will be closed for refurbishment in preparation for an exhibition later next year to celebrate the 300th anniversary of Capability Brown's birth.
24 November - 19 December 2014: Young Henry VIII's Story will be closed for refurbishment.
