One of the greatest of Britain's non-royal palaces, a prodigy house built for Elizabeth I's Lord High Treasurer, Lord Burghley. His interiors include a Great Hall with hammerbeam roof and vaulted Old Kitchen. Later Earls of Exeter have endowed the building with magnificent collections (including perhaps the finest private collection of 17th century Italian paintings) and an opulent series of state rooms, including the famous Heaven Room painted by Verrio. Features: Deer park gently sloping down to lake, and lower garden with fine collection of contemporary sculpture, all landscaped by 'capability' Brown.
