Queen Victoria

Home > Brocket Hall > Bedrooms > Queen Victoria

On her many visits to Brocket Hall to see the Prime Minister who lived and died here, Queen Victoria would always request this room with its view over the Well Lawn and the woods beyond.

Queen Victoria had great affection for Brocket Hall and was closely associated with its owners during her reign, the Prime Ministers Lord Melbourne and Lord Palmerston.

In the years before she ascended to the throne, the young Queen Victoria sought guidance and help from Lord Melbourne who instructed her in the momentous task that lay ahead. Lord Melbourne’s paternal affection towards her helped shape the character of one of England’s most formidable monarchs. Until her marriage with Prince Albert, she was sent flowers from the Brocket Hall on a weekly basis. Queen Victoria often refers to Brocket Hall in her letters and speaks of the peace and tranquillity she found here.

There are a number of photographs in the Royal Archive of Queen Victoria at Brocket Hall alongside her Prime Ministers.
