Knole is one of Britain’s most important and complete historic homes – with a colourful past as an Archbishop’s palace, the former hunting ground of Henry VIII, the home of the Sackville family for 400 years and a source of literary inspiration for Virginia Woolf. Within Knole's internationally important collection are paintings by Reynolds, Gainsborough, Lely and Kneller; dazzling 17th-century state furniture, including three state beds and a set of silver furniture, one of only three major sets to survive in England; and the original manuscript of Virginia Woolf's 'Orlando', inscribed by her to Vita Sackville-West, and presented in turn to the Trust by her son Nigel Nicolson (1917-2004).
