Petworth House

Approx 15.1 miles from the centre of Chichester

The Collection at Petworth House includes paintings by Turner, Van Dyke, Blake, Reynolds and Claude. Petworth also houses an outstanding collection of classical and neo-classical sculpture and fine furniture. Today the House is displayed to reflect the 'golden age' of Petworth, the time when George O'Brien Wyndham, 3rd Earl of Egremont (1751-1837) presided over a vast estate and famous 'house of art'. The room settings, decoration and picture hang are shown as they would have been in the early 19th century.
