20th Oct 2013 – Cultural Visit to Houghton Hall

The magnificent art collection of Britain’s first Prime Minister, Sir Robert Walpole, sold to Catherine the Great to adorn the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, is reassembled in its spectacular original setting for the first time in over 200 years. Unfortunately, we were unable to take photographs of the works of art.
