Uppark House & Garden
Explore the majestic Uppark House and Gardens
Uppark is a fine late 17th century house set high on the South Downs. The disastrous fire in 1989 and its restoration add to the magic of this romantic house. The elegant Georgian interior houses a famous Grand Tour collection of paintings that includes works by Pompeo Batoni and Luca Giordano and a fine collection of furniture and ceramics. The 18th century dolls´ house on display has all its original contents and makes a wonderful exhibit for children and adults alike. In the basement the servants´ quarters are shown as they were in Victorian times, giving a fascinating insight into the houses' history. The historic gardens have been restored and are set in a woodland setting in the heart of the South Downs National Park.
