Houghton Hall celebrates it’s 300th Anniversary this year and has fully re-opened the State Rooms for visitors. Our award winning walled garden promises to delight visitors throughout the season.

There are now several artworks that have been added to the collection for this special celebratory year including new sculptures by international artists Ryan Gander, Claudio Parmiggiani and a painting exhibition by John Virtue.
