Get a taste of country house life as you step into the home of a 1930's millionaire with internationally important works by artists such as Hogarth, Stubbs, Canaletto, Brueghel and El Greco. Lord Bearsted's extensive porcelain collection includes 18th-century Sevres porcelain, Chelsea and Derby figures.

Upton has all the elements of a millionaire's country home - with swimming pool, squash court and a glamourous Art Deco interior in Lady Beardsted's bathroom. The garden planting was principally designed by Kitty Lloyd-Jones with Lady Beardsted in the 1930's. The sweeping lawn gives way to a dramatic series of terraces and herbaceous borders, which descend to a kitchen garden and tranquil water garden. Upton is also home to the National Collection of Asters.
