Nestled alongside the River Avon near Salisbury, in Wiltshire, Longford Castle is a wonderful example of an Elizabethan country house, carefully maintained and preserved to this day. But until recently, it has been relatively little known compared to other English country houses. This book will help to change that. Based on extensive research in the archives of the Bouverie family, which has owned the castle for centuries, it tells the story of the house; its breathtaking collection of art, collected over centuries; and its remarkable furnishings, created by the finest craftsmen of the day. The first glimpse inside this very private house that only recent opened to the public for the first time, and perfect for the armchair traveler or history buff, this book offers all the delights of a country house visit.
Amelia Smith recently completed a PhD on the Longford Castle art collections at Birkbeck, University of London, in collaboration with the National Gallery.
