VANBRUGH'S VISION

This Christmas many of our most recognisable features have been recreated in gingerbread by contemporary food artists Bompas and Parr.

Taking 3 bakers over 200 hours to complete the architectural model depicts the house as originally conceived by Sir John Vanbrugh and is surrounded by estate monuments and working gingerbread hornby train.

The installation which measures 3.5metres by 2.5metres is made from 40kg flour, 15kg sugar, 3kg treacle, 3kg syrup, 1.5kg ground ginger and 18kg butter.

The model will be on show throughout our Christmas opening, from 19 November to 23 December.

Book online in advance and save on your admission.
