NEW FOR 2022 - The Hunting Stables 

Discover the 5th Duke of Portland’s 19th-century architecture during your visit. For the first time ever, the Welbeck Winter Weekend will be situated in The Hunting Stables, one of the earliest buildings to be part of the 5th Duke's architectural endeavours. Visitors will get the opportunity to explore the original stables during a visit to this year's Welbeck Winter Weekend. 



A little history...

Two architectural drawings that date back to 1857 show that the building included a large internal courtyard, with a fountain for cooling the horses after exercise and a symmetrical arrangement of 12 sets of stalls – each for eight horses with accommodation above for grooms. It also included rooms for washing, coal stores, corn, straw and hay stores, a mess room, surgery and a store for saddles. Manure from the stables would have been used to fill the Pineapple Pits.

Interested in discovering more about the 5th Duke of Portland and his building endeavours? Visit The Harley Gallery's current exhibition 'Tunnel Vision' on show until 31st December 2022.
