Titsey Place is a fine historic manor house. Its main construction dates from 1775 and there are also parts of the house that date back to an earlier Tudor house. The interior was designed by William Atkinson and features well-proportioned rooms with regency plastered cornices, panelled doors and simple marble chimney pieces.
Titsey Place is especially noted for its fine collection of family portraits from such noted artists as Sir Joshua Reynolds and Peter Lely, many of which, greet the visitor on first entering the main entrance hall. Other highlights of the tour include the new dining room with its four, stunning paintings of Venice by Canaletto; the the panelled sitting room with its wonderful antiquarian interior: and, the gallery bedroom, an architectural surprise with its splendid Georgian interior.
