Built over 300 years ago, it still stands as a breathtaking symbol of 18th century architecture of sweeping parkland dotted with statues. Featured in film and television productions such as ITV's 'Victoria' and Netflix hit series 'Bridgerton', it's the perfect backdrop for your magical cinema escape.
