Newby Hall's Statue Gallery is home to one of the finest private collections of Roman statuary in Britain, consisting mainly of pieces from the first and second centuries.

Other highlights of the permanent collection include tables and chairs by Thomas Chippendale and Annibale Carracci's painting St Margaret.
