About this space
The Music Room is one of our most spectacular and impressive State Rooms. Its extraordinary interior is lit by nine lotus-shaped chandeliers with stunning walls decorated with rich red and gold canvases in the Chinoiserie style.
The windows are dressed with opulent blue silk-satin draperies supported by carved flying dragons. The gilded domed ceiling is made up of hundreds of plaster cockleshells creating an illusion of height, making it hard not to look up as you enter the room.
One of George IV’s greatest passions was music; within this room the King’s own band entertained guests with Handel or Italian opera. The Italian composer Gioachino Rossini performed here in 1823, Oscar Wilde also lectured and Charles Dickens gave readings in this glorious room. All in all a truly regal and unparalleled stage for a musical recital, performance, ceremony or presentation.
Due to the beautiful reproduction of the original hand knotted and fitted Axminster carpet, food and drink is not permitted in this room.
