Artist's Description

Wollaton Hall is a spectacular Elizabethan mansion designed by Robert Smythson and built by Sir Francis Willoughby between 1580 and 1588 for his family. Now a prominent Grade One listed building, the stunning Hall houses the city’s Natural History Museum along with reconstructed room settings.

The building is in the English Renaissance style and its central lower tower and flanking turrets are considered to be a masterpiece. Repaired and remodelled in 1801 by Sir Jeffery Wyattville and later occupied by the Middletons, the interior of the building is as attractive as its exterior, boasting fabulous design.

Today Wollaton Hall is a prominent Grade One Listed building
