The magnificent Great Hall is the heart of Parham House, with its tall mullioned windows overlooking the South Downs.
Explore the House
The Elizabethan household ate their meals in the Great Hall on long tables with benches, some of which are still under the windows.
The early English furniture includes a draw-leaf table with fine Elizabethan “melon-bulb” legs and a 400 year old Narwhal tusk in its original case. A very fine portrait collection of notable Elizabethans and Jacobean royalty hangs here, including a magnificent portrait by Robert Peake of Henry Frederick, Prince of Wales, riding a white horse.
