Built for Britain’s first Prime Minister, Sir Robert Walpole, in the 1720s, Houghton Hall is now home to the 7th Marquess of Cholmondeley. You’ll find sumptuous furnishings inside this fine Palladian mansion whilst outside is an award-winning Walled Garden and extensive parkland, which is home to a herd of white fallow deer. You can also see the largest private collection of model soldiers in the world and wander through the grounds featuring an impressive permanent collection of contemporary sculptures. Of special interest this year are major solo exhibitions from Antony Gormley and Magdalene Odundo, which sees 100 life-size body sculptures installed across the house and grounds and pieces from one of the world's move revered ceramic artists in the Stone Hall. Find out more.

The coach is due to arrive at 12:30 and depart at 16:00.
