Welbeck Abbey State Room Tours
Take a tour of the State Rooms at Welbeck Abbey and see treasures from the world-class Portland Collection of Art.
Objects and artworks from the world-class Portland Collection decorate the State Rooms. Works on show at Welbeck Abbey include pieces by Sir Peter Lely, John Wootton and Sir Joshua Reynolds.
- The Gothic Hall, with its soaring intricate plasterwork ceiling and imposing full-length Tudor portraits, including pieces by Daniel Mytens
- The Red Tapestry Drawing Room, where you will see bright pink tapestries from the Gobelin workshops – as vivid as when woven over 200 years ago
- The glamorous Swan Drawing Room, with Aubusson carpet and floor-to-ceiling gilt framed Rococo mirrors that reflect the gaze from dozens of family portraits
- The curving Print Corridor, lined with paintings including works by Godfrey Kneller, Michiel Jansz. van Mierevelt, and Cornelius Jonson. A Library and Chapel join the Print Corridor, forming the “greatest Arts and Crafts decorative ensemble in any aristocratic house in Britain” (Michael Hall, Architectural Historian).
