Nostell is a Palladian treasure house, filled with one of the finest collections of Chippendale furniture in the country.

 

 

 

It is also home to a collection of paintings and portraits, but also a wonderful 300-year old longcase clock crafted by John Harrison. 2017 marks the 300th anniversary of the clock and from end of March to July, come and discover Harrison's Garden, a brand new exhibition to celebrate the tercentenary. Created by Luke Jerram, explore the house to see and hear over 2000 ticking clocks on display! For those that like the outdoors, the house is surrounded by acres of parkland and pathways that criss-cross the estate – take time to visit the lakeside walks and beauty of this stunning landscape. Bring a bike and explore the parkland on two wheels - a new cycle track will also be opening in spring 2017 and is the perfect way to leisurely ride and enjoy the landscape. For admission prices, opening times and a full list of events, call 01924 863892 or visit www.nationaltrust.org.uk/nostell
