Houghton Revisited

Houghton Revisited is an exciting exhibition of Sir Robert Maypole's collection of artworks, originally sold to Catherine the Great in 1779. The artworks are returning to their orginal home of Houghton Hall between May and September.

The magnificent art collection of Great Britain’s first Prime Minister, Sir Robert Walpole, sold to Catherine the Great to adorn the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, will be reassembled in its spectacular original setting of Houghton Hall for the first time in over 200 years.
 
The display will include paintings from the English, French, Italian, Flemish and Spanish schools, with masterpieces by Van Dyck, Poussin, Albani, Rubens, Rembrandt, Velazquez and Murillo.

This is a once in a life-time opportunity to see this collection so make sure you make it down between now and September 29th. Why not combine a visit on the 9th June with our Big Giant Zumbathon?
