Houghton Hall
Great Britain, Kings Lynn

Houghton Hall is one of the most magnificent buildings in England. It was built in the early 18th century by the first British Prime Minister Robert Walpole. Walpole created a magnificent example of the work of architects, craftsmen and painters of the Georgian era. The work of architects James Gibbs and Colin Campbell was complemented by the amazing beauty of William Kent's interiors, and all this together absolutely accurately reflects Walpole's high status. The Seventh Marquis of Cholmondeli, whose family inherited this estate, maintains the traditions and furnishings of Houghton Hall as they were in Walpole's time.
Houghton Hall is located in the center of a large agricultural area, next to a deer park, which is considered the habitat of white fallow deer and various species of deer. There is also an old church in this park, and in the district you can see some modern sculptures by world artists, such as “Heavenly Space” by James Turrell, “Full Moon Circle” by Richard Long and many others.
