Ightham Mote Interiors

Well hello and welcome to Ightham Mote, a pleasant idyll in Kent.  The interiors are presented as a walk through time including an extraordinary painting.  Views of the exterior and beautiful gardens and more information about this medieval manor house can be found here  ⇐.   But first, a little walk through time (although not necessarily in the right order 🙂 )  ~










The above is a corner of the Billiard Room situated across the main courtyard.  Back to the main building :-

A replica of Ellen Terry’s famous beetle-wing costume in which she played Lady Macbeth in 1888/89



Miss Elsie Palmer by John Singer Sargent 1890


Thank you for the visit and if you missed the exterior views then you can find them  here ⇐ .
