Houghton Revisited

I am SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS!

The art collection once belonging to Britain’s first Prime Minister Robert Walpole is on a visit back from The Hermitage in Russia for the first time since Catherine the Great bought it after his death more than 250 years ago.

I am hoping to get down there in July to see it at Houghton Hall, and will let you know if I do.

Anyone else excited?

You can read more about it and the hall here.
