Built in Wiltshire during the reign of Elizabeth I, Longford Castle, seat of the Earls of Radnor, houses an important art collection – the majority of the paintings still hanging within the magnificently furnished home. This study of Longford, its collectors and its paintings is illustrated by 119 photographs of the interior and reproductions of works by artists including Velázquez, Gainsborough and Van Dyck, and masterpieces now in the National Gallery, among them The Ambassadors by Hans Holbein the Younger.
