Profile Description

About Tabley House, Wedding and Events, Art and Furniture Collection

Tabley House was designed by John Carr of York for Sir Peter Byrne Leicester, Bt., and completed in 1769. His son, Sir John Fleming Leicester, Bt., later 1st Lord de Tabley, was the first great patron and collector of British paintings. He assembled a splendid collection at Tabley and in his London house during the first decade of the 19th Century, ultimately with the intention of establishing a National Gallery of British Art.

JMW Turner, Henry Thompson and James Ward were among the many painters who stayed at Tabley. Today, important works by them can be seen in the rooms for which they were created, together with fine paintings by Dobson, Lely, Reynolds, Cotes, Northcote, Callcott, Fuseli, Lawrence, Opie, Martin and others.

Tabley House Today

Tabley House plays host to many events throughout the year. Please see our Event Calendar for a full list of dates taking place at Tabley house. Events include the very popular Point To Point, Choral and Musical recitals and concerts and much more.

Volunteers at Tabley House

Much of the work required to maintain the house and collection falls to the team of over 30 volunteers dedicated to preserving the art and furniture at the house. If you are interested in becoming a steward or offering some of your spare time to working with the curatorial team, please contact the administrator on 01565-750151 or call in when the house is open.
