Shugborough - The Complete Working Historic Estate

Shugborough estate in Staffordshire provides a complete guide to living in the 19th century, with a working laundry, kitchens, brewhouse, dairy, mill and farm. Its atmospheric interiors reflect 300 years of the changing fortunes of the Anson family.

The house has sumptuous surrounds and lavish interiors, but highlights its Blue Drawing Room, which contains the majority of the Chinese collections in the house, and the State Sitting Room and Bedroom, once occupied by Princess Victoria and her mother the Duchess of Kent.

Also worth visiting is the Library, with its wonderful plasterwork ceiling by Vassalli, secret concealed doors and mirrors giving the appearance of continuous bookshelves. Outside, 900 acres of parkland shroud tranquil walks through woodland and riverside, Grade One-listed formal gardens and the newly restored 1805 vintage Walled Garden.
