Welbeck Abbey State Room Tours // ‘Treasures’ Tours 2023

Take a guided tour of Welbeck Abbey’s State Rooms and see treasures from The Portland Collection of art.

Imagine life as an Edwardian aristocrat as you explore the rooms decorated by the 6th Duke and Duchess of Portland. You’ll see the art and architecture that was used to entertain their high-profile guests – including Kings, Queens, and world leaders.

Highlights include:

  • The Gothic Hall, with its soaring intricate plasterwork ceiling and imposing full length portrait paintings
  • The Red Tapestry Drawing Room, where you’ll see bright pink Gobelins tapestries – as vivid as when they were woven over 200 years ago
  • The glamorous Swan Drawing Room, where floor to ceiling gilt framed Rococo mirrors reflect the gaze from dozens of family portraits.
