Rousham House, Oxon, home of the Cottrell-Dormer family since 1630, was remodelled by William Kent in the 18th century. Kent made alterations to the interior of the house which retains some 17th century panelling and the original staircases, furniture, pictures and bronzes. His famous landscape garden represents the first phase of English landscape design and remains almost as Kent left it, one of the few gardens of this date to have escaped alteration, the classical follies and statuary evoking reminders of ancient Rome.
Coffee en route at the studio of Beatrice Hoffmann to enjoy her distinctive figurative and abstract bronze sculpture.
