The Drawing Room

This grand formal room was historically an important space for entertaining so we’re proud to continue the tradition to this day. It was remodelled in 1835 by Sydney Smirke as a music room for the Rothschild family, with classical ornamental columns adorned with golden lyres and retains many original architectural features including the monogram of Nathan Mayer Rothschild.

With three stunning French doors that open out onto the terrace and south lawns, the Drawing Room originally enabled the Rothschilds to entertain guests both inside and out and, in 1857, Leonora de Rothschild married her Baron, Alphonse, in this very room before adjourning to the Dining Room for their splendid wedding banquet.

The Drawing Room leads out to the Conservatory, an ideal space from where the soft strains of your musicians can be heard or whereby your guests may enjoy a private entrance into the House.

Available on Thursdays and selected Fridays to hire on its’ own, the Drawing Room is perfect for dining for up to 80 guests, a standing reception for 100 or a theatre-style seating for 90. Alternatively, it forms the figurehead room for the hugely impressive Rothschild Rooms that are available Thursday through to Sunday.
