First World War
Opened in 2014 to commemorate the centenary of the First World War, this exhibition explores the impact of the War on the castle community through selected personal stories of members of the Percy family, their household staff and estate workers.
The exhibition is located in the newly restored Edwardian ‘below stairs’ area of the castle.
Capability Brown Exhibition
The design of the exhibition, which features both inside the State Rooms and outside on the Terrace, is inspired by the idea of looking at a picture on an artist's easel, highlighting the artistic nature of the Arcadian landscape designed by the famous Lancelot 'Capability' Brown in the 1770s.
