£25, Afternoon

Orleans House Gallery stands in the grounds of the original Orleans House, a site comprising approximately six acres with natural woodland and parkland used for recreational activities. The house took its name from Louise Phillipe Duc d’Orleans (1773-1850), later King of the French, who lived there from 1815 until 1817 during his exile from France. The property was originally built in 1710 for James Johnston, Joint Secretary of State for Scotland under William III by John James. The baroque Octagon Room, Grade I listed, was constructed around 1720 and designed by James Gibbs. It features fine gilded decorative plasterwork by distinguished stuccatori (plasterers), Giuseppe Artari and Giovanni Bagutti. The HLF funded ‘Transforming Orleans House’ project completed was completed in 2018. The tour will be led by Ayaka Takaka of Donald Insall Architects.
