Petworth House is a National Trust property in West Sussex.
The main feature is an extensive collection of paintings – I particularly liked Turner’s paintings of hulks – there’s something about ships in old age.
Also worth seeing is the Carved Room (Grindly Gibbons) and the former kitchen and servant’s quarters which also incorporates a better-than-NT-average tea shop.
At the moment there is also an exhibition showing the history of the estate as revealed by recent archaeological digs. The exhibition also gives a step by step account of how the estate grew from a small manor house to the extensive walled park (basically they just kept appropriating neighbouring land).
Anyway, here are the pics.
