Dumfries House 10th anniversary

Visit and Talk | Dumfries House

Tuesday 6 June 2017 - 09:00 until 18:00

Dumfries House is one of Britain's most beautiful stately homes. Set in 2,000 acres of land, this stunning estate and 18th century house, with its unrivalled collection of original furniture has something for everyone. Saved by the intervention of His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales in 2007, Dumfries House combines the neoclassical architecture of Robert Adam with the furniture of Thomas Chippendale and leading 18th century Scottish cabinet makers.

On arrival there will be coffee and biscuits served in the Rothesay Room with a talk giving an update on developments on the estate during the last 10 years. There will then be a guided Grand Tour of Dumfries House. This will be followed by a two-course luncheon in the Library which is situated in the west wing of the house. Afterwards the Head Gardener will give a guided tour of the walled garden.

This event has been organised by the Dumfries and Galloway Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
