Visit our new art gallery which celebrates the power, beauty and influence of nature featuring work by esteemed botanical artists, such as John Nash and Mary Grierson.

Originally curated by Lady Rachel Labouchere, Dudmaston’s last owner, in the late 1970s, the gallery space has undergone a transformation. As part of a complete rehang, the gallery now boasts a new colour scheme and lighting system which highlights the new positions of the artwork on display.

Examples of Lady Labouchere’s own artwork, including her watercolours which depict some familiar scenes at Dudmaston, are on display as part of the exhibition. She was trained, as an amateur artist, by John Nash at Flatford Mill in Suffolk. Chairs and handbags which she embroidered with botanical designs, are on display in the gallery, alongside photographs of her doing the work.

This event is free, but normal admission charges apply for the venue.

Arrive at Visitor Reception and enjoy visiting the galleries at the Hall.

Many of the galleries are up stairs. Picture books of the artwork are available.


Seek out all the places to play at Dudmaston Hall this summer. Borrow a selection of traditional lawn games from reception and challenge your friends and family.

Made in Shropshire Artisan Fairs are the best place in the region to meet and buy from local, independent makers and producers.

Visit Dudmaston after hours and see the garden and galleries in a different light. Top off a relaxing summer's evening by spoiling yourself with a treat from the Orchard Tea Room.

Watch a fast-paced, charmingly chaotic interpretation of the classic Shakespeare comedy by the intrepid Handlebards who carry their costumes, props and entire set on their bikes!
