Wander from room to room through Houghton Hall and explore the magnificent art collection of Sir Robert Walpole, Great Britain's first Prime Minister.
Wonder at masterpieces by Van Dyck, Poussin, Rubens, Rembrandt, Velazquez, Maratta and Murillo, reassembled in their spectacular original setting for the first time in over 200 years after they were sold to Empress Catherine the Great to adorn the Hermitage in St Petersburg.
Professor Mikhail Piotrovsky, Director of the State Hermiatge Museum, describes Houghton Revisited as an 'installation' - this very high quality app provides you with the opportunity to explore Houghton's interiors as they were intended, designed to house this unique collection.
We hope you enjoy your visit to Houghton Revisited in Summer 2013. The app provides a perfect pocket guide whilst you are there and will help with all the information you require to book your tickets and plan your trip.
On account of its success, the Houghton Revisited Exhibition has now extended until 24th November.
What's New in Version 1.4
You may now choose to have information about each of the rooms narrated to you as you look around.
This app is beautifully produced and photographed. It is indeed a delight to enjoy each room that is presented at one's leisure and take a virtual tour of everything in each room, including the ceiling, in all its' consummate glory.
I wish more stately British mansions would open their homes to this viewing idea and allow us to view their impressive collections from the comfort of our own homes.
Take this app as a rich jewel and add it to your own collection of guilty little pleasures. You will not be disappointed.
