Wilton House


Easter marks the re-opening of Wilton House, the Palladian Wiltshire home of the Earls of Pembroke, rebuilt by celebrated architects, Inigo Jones and John Webb in 1647. The ornate rooms may seem familiar, often acting as television and film backdrops. Most recently on Netflix, Wilton House was used to create four different residences in the period drama series Bridgerton, and the Double Cube Room with its Old Master paintings and Chippendal­e mirrors are the Buckingham Palace interiors for Netflix's The Crown. Other must visits include the Gothic Cloisters where Napoleon I's dispatch box, a lock of Queen Elizabeth I's hair and more are displayed. Roam around the 21 acre parkland or head for the Holbein Porch, the house's original Tudor entrance.
