History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The architect responsible for the new Gorhambury was Sir Robert Taylor, who built an imposing 3-storey building, which has since been refaced in white Portland stone. The building began in 1779 and was finished in 1790. Within the house is a large collection of Bacon family portraits.
There is regular entry in the summer months. Please check with the property for exact details.
