If you like tapestries, then this is the place for you. Even if you don’t (I don’t particularly) it’s still, frankly, gobsmacking. The gardens are nice (especially the herb garden) and the walks down by the ponds, but the interior of the Hall is something else. It’s massive, and unlike its sister Chatsworth seems to retain a great deal of its Tudor feel. And there’s tapestries everywhere, like crazy wallpaper. The Long Gallery must be over 20 feet high and it’s floor to ceiling. Look.
The whole place - because of the height of the rooms - is really awe inspiring. And they do a really good cream tea too (that is the important bit).
