Syon House is the London home of the Dukes of Northumberland. Described by John Betjeman as 'the Grand Architectural Walk', this splendid classical house stands in its own park and water meadows on the banks of the Thames, eight miles from central London. The splendour of Syon is reflected in Canaletto's magnificent 18th Century painting.

The interior of Syon is its glory. In 1761 Robert Adam was commissioned by the first Duke of Northumberland to create a spectacular sequence of decorative interiors.
