 Moggerhanger Park is a 33-acre estate in the middle of rural Bedfordshire. The elegant historic house was designed by Sir John Soane in 1792 as the country home for the Governor of the Bank of England, Godfrey Thornton. It is gracefully set in natural parkland, landscaped by Humphry Repton, and among the original features are the spacious walled gardens, an ice house and a peaceful woodland walk. A grand programme of restoration between 2000 and 2012 brought the house and its park back to their former glory. 

Permanent collections
