About The International Country House

We traditionally view Normanby Hall as a typical English country house. This exhibition invites you to look again…

The Regency period was a time of travel and discovery. As a result, the Hall is bursting with influences from many different cultures. From the architecture to the furnishings, and from the use of items to the techniques used to make them.

Move through the Regency rooms and discover the clues hidden in plain sight. Use the touchscreens or printed exhibition room guides to explore the influence of the eastern hemisphere.

Discover the influence of world cultures in fashion past and present in the costume gallery on the first floor.

This exhibition is a multicultural celebration. This is not an English Country House. This is an International Country House.
