Welcome to the guided tour of Birdsall House.
We will be given a brief history of Birdsall and family before exploring round the house. Birdsall House contains a large variety of antique paintings,furniture and a unbroken line of portraits of the Willoughby family from 1579.
The collection is the highlight of the furniture and paintings collected by the Willoughby's over the last 500 years. Artists include furniture by Thomas Chippendale and Gillows of Lancaster, paintings by Joshua Reynolds, Pompeo Batoni and Louis-Gabriel Blanchet.
After the tour, we will be given coffee and biscuits in the large dining room and our group is more than welcome to walk round the gardens too.
