Drawing Room

Deriving from the 16th century term “withdrawing room” which remained in use through the 17th century, the Drawing Room served as a room where the occupants of the Hall could “withdraw” to for some privacy. Today it is offered as a second room along with The Morning Room in which to welcome guests with drinks from a drinks trolley.

A painting of Queen Victoria, who spent much of her time at Brocket Hall and allegedly found out she was to be queen whilst reading a book under her favourite tree, hangs prominently in the Drawing Room. It is the ideal break out area from the Dining Room as guests can enjoy views of the Well Lawn and surrounding parkland.

The ceiling is an original by the Florentine artist Giovanni Battista Cipriani and there is a “hidden” door into the Dining Room.
