It’s all fabulous stained glass, scented cedar panelling, gilt and bronze with marble, jasper, porphyry and onyx floors.Minimal White Cube this is not, and during exhibitions, discovering the extravagance will cost you nothing.  If you prefer your events more exclusive, the house is available for private hire all year round and is the ideal venue for a sumptuous reception or atmospheric dinner or conference, with all proceeds to the charity, the Bulldog Trust, that owns it.
