Overview

Paxton House is situated on the banks of the River Tweed, near Berwick-upon-Tweed. Designed by John and James Adam in 1758, it is perhaps the finest example of an eighteenth-century Palladian country house in Britain and contains a pre-eminent collection of Chippendale furniture. In 1811, the Edinburgh architect Robert Reid added the largest purpose-built picture gallery in a Scottish country house.

Today, this gallery focuses on British art from 1760 to 1840, taken from the National Galleries of Scotland’s collection and containing works by Raeburn, Wilkie and Lawrence, among others. There is a shop and tea room for visitors.

The house lies at the centre of eighty acres of accessible gardens, woodland and parkland. Boat trips and net fishing have been added up the river tweed to add to a fantastic family day out. Picnic areas, animal observation hides and an adventure playground can be found throughout the ground for all to enjoy.

Paxton House is a majestic wedding venue in the Scottish Borders, just 4 miles from Berwick-upon-Tweed. Visit My Northumberland Wedding for info.
