The Great Hall is lavishly decorated with wooden panelling and Flemish tapestries, showing the vast opulence of the Grosvenor family, who were the wealthiest family in Britain during the 19th century. The house was originally built in the 15th century but during Buckler's visit the whole estate was undergoing extensive renovation. The interior retained much of its former Tudor grandeur but the facade was unrecognisably altered in 1870.
