The Painted Hall is currently closed as we prepare for an ambitious conservation project. Over 2 years, a team of conservators will work on 3,400 square metres of painted surface, bringing new life and vibrancy to paintings obscured by decades of deterioration.

From next spring visitors will have the opportunity to get up close to the vast lower hall ceiling via a special observation deck.
