Spend some time in the house discovering the collection of fine art and objet d’art (including Faberge); linger in the glittering gold Saloon which was designed to impress Maharajahs. Enjoy a walk through ancient woodland on the 1400 acre estate, taking in the stunning views across the Surrey Hills; or simply enjoy a delicious picnic and an ice cream on the South Lawn.

The garden’s setting at Polesden Lacey is spectacular; perched on a chalk ridge and taking in views southwards towards the wooded slopes of Ranmore Common and the valley below.

Mrs Greville designed her gardens to impress, as she did with the decor in the house. Imagine the sound of music coming from the house on summer evenings mixed with laughter, merriment and the chink of champagne glasses.
