Long Room

The Long Room

Viola Duchess, the present Duke's mother, was keen for as many people as possible to see the Long Room and therefore one of its main uses was as a venue for charity fundraising events. This tradition continues under the present Duke and Duchess, and in 1992 the Long Room was refurbished whilst retaining the same atmosphere of a large country house drawing room.

Much used for charity and other fundraising events, the Long Room can hold up to 100 people and benefits from a number of other changes made in recent years. For example, the room where the horses used to be washed down has been made into a servery and kitchen, and what was the saddle room is now a large dining room with a long refectory table.
