Upton House & Gardens
Home of Lord and Lady Bearsted in the 1930’s this house became a bank (an arm of Shell, where Lord Bearsted was the Director) in WWII and helped to fund the war effort.
Today the house is known for its art collections including porcelain, artworks by El Greco and Stubbs and Art Deco style including a red and silver bathroom.
The tiered gardens reflect the glory days of the 1930s, when they were designed by Welsh-born garden designer “Kitty” Lloyd-Jones with Lady Bearsted, incorporating lovely combinations of both soft and strong colours.
