Houghton Outdoor Sculpture

In recent years, Lord Cholmondeley has built up an impressive collection of contemporary sculptures by world renowned artists, which are displayed in the gardens and grounds at Houghton. The first to be commissioned, in 2000, was a ‘Skyspace’ by the American artist James Turrell. Since then sculptures by Sir Richard Long, Anya Gallaccio, Zhan Wang, Stephen Cox, Jeppe Hein and Rachel Whiteread and Phillip King have been added, many specifically created for a particular place in the grounds.

‘My hope is that in time Houghton will become a ‘must-see’ destination for those interested in contemporary art and sculpture.’ Lord Cholmondeley.
