2016 Summer Exhibition
The Charlton Hunt
1st August – 31st August 2016
The Charlton Hunt is one of the earliest recorded foxhunts in the world and its fame drew the elite of society, including the Dukes of Monmouth, St Albans and Richmond, the dashing illegitimate sons of King Charles II. It was to hunt with the Charlton Hunt that the first Duke of Richmond bought nearby Goodwood House. The summer exhibition explores the history of the hunt which was synonymous with some of the best sport in the country.
Take your time to wander through the state apartments, enjoying the stunning art collection with Stubbs, Van Dyck and Canalettos on display and why not indulge in the surroundings of the regency ballroom and afternoon tea.
