A rare opportunity to visit this beautiful castle and its world-class art collection on one of the few days it's open to the public

Situated near Salisbury in Wiltshire, with the River Avon running through its grounds and home to the Earls of Radnor for generations, Longford Castle is one of the most magnificent of all English country houses.

The Longford Castle collection is one of the finest in the country, featuring paintings by Van Dyck, Claude, Teniers, Hals, Reynolds, and Gainsborough, as well as oriental porcelain, Brussels tapestries, and exceptional 18th-century English and continental furniture. In fact, several masterpieces on display at the National Gallery, such as Holbein’s Ambassadors, were once part of the Longford Castle collection.

Longford Castle is open to the public 28 days a year, with tickets sold exclusively through the National Gallery (on behalf of the Estate).

Please ensure you have read the ticket and visitor information before booking tickets.
