Basildon Park

About

This beautiful Palladian mansion was built in 1776-83. The interior is notable for its original delicate plasterwork and elegant staircase, as well as the unusual Octagon Room. The house fell on hard times early in the last century but was rescued and restored by Lord and Lady Iliffe, who filled it with fine pictures and furniture. The early-19thC pleasure gardens are currently being restored and there are way-marked trails through the parkland. The property is owned by The National Trust. 

For the very latest opening times and prices please visit the National Trust website.
