Charlton House

Charlton House illustrates a little-represented phase in the evolution of the English country house. The original oak staircase remains alongside beautiful fireplaces and plasterwork ceilings. With a range of rooms, halls, and gardens there is a diversity to the House which will delight visitors as well as provide unique spaces for commercial and filming hire. Charlton House was built between 1607 and 1612 for Sir Adam Newton, tutor to Henry, Prince of Wales - the eldest son of King James I. The varying ownership of the House over the years paints an interesting story reflected in the building itself and within the local area. Notable owners include Spencer Percival, the only Prime Minister to be assassinated. In 1918, the Maryon-Wilson Family gave the Red Cross free use of the House for an Auxiliary Hospital. Charlton House is one of the finest surviving Jacobean manor houses in England.
