Kingston Lacy National Trust

Kingston Lacy National Trust 

One of our team is currently writing a review on Kingston Lacy. The information below has been collected from the venue website.

Explore Kingston Lacy, a lavish family home built to resemble an Italian Palace. There’s plenty to see, from grand, beautifully detailed carvings, to intimate family souvenirs and even strange curiosities such as an ‘I owe you’ note from a king. An art lover’s dream, the rooms teeming with paintings by Rubens, Van Dyck, Titian and Brueghel. In the Egyptian Room you can discover the largest private collection of ancient Egyptian artefacts in the UK.

Why not enjoy a summer picnic on the south lawn or let the children run wild in the nearby play areas. Have a wander around the Japanese Garden, complete with authentic tea house or take a sheltered walk through the surrounding woodland. You can even learn how to grow your own food in the ‘Community Growing Spaces’.

From Iron Age forts, to colourful heathland, water meadows and even a Roman road, there’s loads to see on the 8,500 acres of estate. Don’t forget to pop into the restaurant to try our tasty cakes and prize-winning scones.Family
