UPTON HOUSE AND BROUGHTON CASTLE
Tuesday 21 May 2019

This all day tour will cost members £32 per person. This ticket price includes entrance to Broughton Castle. Upton House is a National Trust property and non NT members will need to pay the entrance fee on the day. 

Upton House is famous for the excellent collection of paintings on display. It was owned by the Bearsteds from 1927. They spent the money made via Shell Oil on paintings from Bosch to Stubbs and El Greco. The house was adapted to accommodate the paintings and porcelain. There is a fine garden designed by Lady Bearsted and a kitchen garden with a mirror pool. On arrival we will get tea and biscuits. Following the tour there will be a chance to see the gardens and take lunch.

We shall then go to Broughton Castle for a 2pm tour Broughton Castle is the residence of Lord Saye and Sele of the Fiennes family, since 1447 is a moated and fortified manor house. It is rated by Simon Jenkins as one of the best houses in Britain. The house is usually closed on Tuesdays so they are opening specially for us. They will provide us with tea and cakes served at 3.30pm at a cost of £4.95.
