Home to the Duke of Rutland, the Castle enjoys breathtaking views and houses an impressive collection of period furniture and porcelain, together with paintings by Gainsborough, Reynolds, Holbein and Poussin. Extensive grounds include the Spring Gardens, dating from the 1800s, recently restored by the Duchess of Rutland and now open to visitors.
