Boughton House & Gardens

Discover one of Britain’s grandest and best-preserved stately homes. Boughton House, famous for its internationally renowned art collection, has been home to the Buccleuch Family’s ancestors since 1528. Once a simple Tudor manor, the House was transformed over the centuries into a French style palace, earning it the title ‘The English Versailles’. Inside you’ll find a home rich in the decorative arts from 16th century carpets, tapestries and furniture to painting masterpieces by El Greco, Van Dyck and Gainsborough. Outside you can explore 150 acres of stunning gardens, landscapes, tree-lined avenues and serene waterways. When it’s time for a refreshing cup of tea, head over to the Stables Café and Gift Shop. Special events held throughout the year. Weddings, private and corporate events are also available.
