Montacute House is a National Trust property set in acres of parkland, based on a Elizabethan mansion, which has been heavily adapted over the years. On the top floor is the impressive Long Gallery, which is an outpost of the National Portrait Gallery and contains some quality Tudor portraits – including Henry VIII and Elizabeth I. As with many National Trust properties it has an excellent tea room serving light lunches and cream teas.

For more of the history of the house, see this Wikipedia article.

For opening hours see the National Trust web page for the property.
