Drawing on the past for a perfect present
Visiting Welbeck is more than spending a day together, it's about making memories together.
Immerse yourself into the history of the Welbeck estate with a visit to The Portland Collection museum, where the story of the Dukes of Portland come to life with fine and decorative arts objects. Here you'll find ancient Roman gems, the pearl earring that Charles I wore at his beheading as well as a drawing by Michelangelo. These works tell a story about England and the way people, places, tastes and society have changed over the centuries. If history is your dad's thing, book a ticket and surprise him with a guided tour of Welbeck Abbey State Rooms. Click here to plan your visit or read more about the history of Welbeck.
