Inspired by the Baroque palaces of Europe, Petworth House is an extraordinary and surprising ancestral seat created by just one family over 900 years. The 17th-century building you can see today comprises grand state rooms, which form the centre piece of any visit.
Designed to display the taste, lifestyle and artistic patronage of generations, the state rooms offer an infinity of paintings and sculpture, including major works by Van Dyck, Turner, Reynolds and Gainsborough and a particular highlight is the earliest English globe in existence dating back to 1592. This remarkable collection reflects a journey of survival and success through the Tudor Reformation.Find Out More
