Visits & Study Days Visit to Burton Constable Hall and Ferens Art Gallery, Hull. Tuesday 23rd October 2018 Burton Constable Hall is a large Elizabethan country house with 18th and 19th century interiors, and a fine 18th century cabinet of curiosities. The Hall, a Grade I listed building, is set in a 300 acre park designed by Capability Brown. The Hall has been the home of the Constable family for over 400 years. During the eighteenth century William Constable elected to spend a fortune re-fashioning his house in the taste of the day. A number of items were purchased from Thomas Chippendale for the Hall, and also for the Constable’s London House, which was later bought to Burton Constable Hall. 2018 is the three hundredth anniversary of Thomas Chippendale’s birth, and Burton Constable is one of a small number of venues taking part in the Chippendale 300 Festival. The Ferens Art Gallery is a well-regarded provincial gallery which hosts both a permanent collection and visiting exhibitions.
