The Harley Gallery
Free 


An all-new display of objects from Welbeck's historic Portland Collection of fine and decorative art, built up by the Dukes of Portland and their families who have been at the country estate since 1607.

The display includes a wide variety of works from the internationally significant collection, from grand full-length oil painted portraits to tiny miniatures, furniture to jewellery, books to ceramics.

The new collection focuses on the extraordinary women in the family's ancestry. From the first sci-fi writer to a natural historian and a great philanthropist, strong women have a history of thriving at Welbeck. With rare and beautiful portraits to wonderful china and silverware, the displays offer visitors the opportunity to study the wonderful treasures amassed by this aristocratic family.
