National Trust Nostell

National Trust Nostell


Chippendale's legacy at Nostell is a window into the 18th century world of fashion, innovation and social ambition. Step inside the grand interiors on the first floor and get a taste of the roller coaster life of a top end designer and his demanding client through exciting new ways of story-telling. In 2019 we’re shining a spotlight on the most opulent of these bespoke spaces, the Chinese-inspired State Apartment. Discover the stories behind the showpiece mirror at the centre of this suite as it is taken off the wall for the first time in living memory.

Don’t miss the Chippendale: the Man and the Brand exhibition and Obelisk Marbling, a contemporary artwork by Giles Round.
