Outbuildings, at New Houghton Hall, Norfolk
The buildings serve many purposes and include the offices for the general administration of the Estate.
Built in the 1720s by Britain's first prime minister, Robert Walpole, Houghton Hall is one of the grandest Palladian houses in England. Walpole created a magnificent showcase for the finest architects, craftsmen and painters of the Georgian Age. The work of architects James Gibbs and Colen Campbell was complemented by the superb interiors of William Kent and opulently furnished to reflect Walpole's status. The 7th Marques of Cholmondeley, whose family inherited the estate through marriage, continues to maintain many of the original features and furnishings of the Hall, allowing visitors the opportunity to step back in time and enjoy Houghton Hall much as it would have been in Walpole's day.
