Mount Stewart

The main block of Mount Stewart, with a giant portico fronting a balustrade entrance court, was built for the 3rd Marquess of Londonderry in the mid-1830s to the designs of the Irish architect William Vitruvius Morrison, son of Richard Morrison. The early 19th-century west wing is by George Dance the Younger, founder-member of the Royal Academy and pioneer of Neo-classicism. The Temple of the Winds, a banqueting house on a hill to the south of the main building, built in 1782-5, is by James ‘Athenian’ Stuart. The interiors of Mount Stewart range from Morrison’s splendid but rather monumental Ionic hall and drawing room to Dance’s more sophisticated work, especially his music room, with an inlaid floor of oak and mahogany surrounded by bog fir, and the beautiful domed staircase hall. Much of the house was redecorated and refurnished in the 1920s and 1930s by Edith, Lady Londonderry, wife of the 7th Marquess. Following three years of extensive restoration the house reopened in 2015.

A collection of objects relating to the career of Lord Castlereagh (later 2nd Marquess of Londonderry), now remembered as one of Britain's most important foreign secretaries, including the set of chairs used by the 1815 Congress of Vienna delegates (Wellington and Talleyrand amongst them) and a bust of Helen of Troy by Antonio Canova. A fine collection of paintings including Grand Tour portraits of Robert Stewart (later 1st Marquess of Londonderry) by Anton Rafael Mengs and of Alexander Stewart by Pompeo Batoni; portraits by Sir Thomas Lawrence whose career was bolstered by his association with Robert, Viscount Castlereagh and his half-brother Sir Charles Stewart; equestrian paintings, including George Stubbs' 'Hambletonian Rubbing Down' painted after the horse's greatest win at Newmarket; important 20th-century portraits commissioned from the most prominent portraitists of the day including Philip Alexius de László de Lombos, Sir John Lavery and Edmond Brock. Brock's group portrait 'Circle and the Sirens', which depicts Edith, Marchioness of Londonderry and her three youngest daughters, captures the magical and creative spirit of Mount Stewart in the 1920s - the heyday of the house.
