  • Welbeck Abbey State Room Tours

    3 Aug 2015 - 30 Aug 2015
    Welbeck Estate
    The Harley Gallery Trading Ltd, Welbeck, Worksop, Nottinghamshire

    Welbeck Abbey has been home to the Cavendish-Bentinck family from 1607 to the present.

    The Welbeck Estate covers some 15,000 acres, nestled between Sherwood Forest and Clumber Park. At its heart lies Welbeck Abbey, a stately home which dates back to 1153 when it was founded as a Premonstratensian monastery.

    Welbeck was acquired by Charles Cavendish, Bess of Hardwick’s third son, in 1607. Over the next four centuries, the family at Welbeck would collect artworks, commission architecture and combine family names, with, unusually, three females in succession inheriting the Estate. This line of descent includes marriages with the Dukedom of Newcastle, Earldom of Oxford and the Dukedom of Portland, each bringing additional wealth, status and power to Welbeck.

    The tour takes in the grand State Rooms, the Abbey’s reception rooms which have been host to royalty, aristocracy and statesmen. The State Rooms are decorated with objects and artworks from The Portland Collection; an internationally significant collection which includes one of the largest privately owned collections of British portraits. Works on show at Welbeck Abbey include pieces by Sir Peter Lely, John Wootton and Sir Joshua Reynolds.
