"England’s most ambitious country house restoration project"

Brougham Hall was dubbed by Victorians as the “Windsor of the North”.

Its physical appearance and fine elevated position above a broad river were two obvious similarities.

Brougham Hall’s long connection with royalty provided the real link. King George V (as he later became) was a regular guest, and so was King Edward V11 whose sporting interests in Cumbria, it was rumoured, covered a broad range of different quarries.
