Due to popular demand this unique once in a lifetime opportunity titled “Houghton Revisited” has now been extended to 24th November 2013.
So what is it all about???
In case you haven’t heard right on our very own doorstep in beautiful West Norfolk just South of Kings Lynn set in acres of land where white fallow deer run free is the breathtaking Houghton Hall.
Houghton Hall was built and home to Britain’s first ever Prime Minister Sir Robert Walpole and now after 234 years his previous spectacular painting collection consisting of over 70 paintings that was sold to Russia which includes artists such as Murillo, Van Dyck, Rembrandt, Poussin and Rubens have been returned for a short time and hung as close as possible back to their original positions in the state rooms. This exhibition also makes you really feel like you are stepping back in time as the paintings are surrounded by the original furniture, bronzes and tapestries.
If you haven’t already visited this wonderful experience I suggest you book soon as you wouldn’t want to miss out on this real once in a lifetime opportunity.
