A Grade 1 listed Georgian house, Moggerhanger Park is recognised as the most complete surviving example of John Soane's work. It is set in 33 acres of fine landscaped parkland.
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.
Moggerhanger offers an opportunity to experience John Soane’s light and graceful interiors at first hand. There’s a consecrated chapel, a fabulous Eating Room with ornate plasterwork, an Old Library and a variety of reception rooms with original features.
