Fodor's Review

Sir Charles Barry, co-architect of the Houses of Parliament in London, created this grand 19th-century country house built to resemble a 17th-century Italian palazzo. It contains notable paintings by Titian, Rubens, Van Dyck, and Velásquez, as well as a fabulous Spanish Room lined with gilded leather and topped by an ornate Venetian ceiling. There's also a fine collection of Egyptian artifacts. Formal gardens (including a Japanese garden with a tea house) and extensive parkland with walking paths surround the house.
