Set in green parkland or surrounded by magnificent gardens, these great houses - some preserved by the National Trust - retain much of the beauty, peace and dignity of the old days. Within are halls and vast rooms sumptuously decorated, filled with fine furniture and paintings collected and treasured over the centuries. Knole House (Sevenoaks), Hampton Court Palace, Clandon Park (Guilford), Polesdon Lacey (Bookham), and Wilton House or Salisbury are just a few of the stately homes that welcome the visitor., (AD 7268/B25)
