Join us for a special tour of the stunning State Rooms at Stansted House and discover the fascinating stories of the Ponsonby women.

From Henrietta Ponsonby, Countess of Bessborough’s political campaigning in the eighteenth century to Lady Moyra Ponsonby’s experiences as a nurse, this  tour will explore the lives of the women whose portraits and photographs decorate Stansted House today.

During the tour, you will also have the opportunity to see items from the collection that are not usually on display during our public opening.

This guided tour will last approximately one hour.

Discounted tickets are available for Friends of Stansted Park.
