Sir Alfred Munnings Castle House

Book Tickets Online


Each year a changing selection of 150 paintings and drawings from the museum’s significant collection of works by Sir Alfred Munnings is hung chronologically throughout eight rooms. From less familiar early apprentice poster designs to the explosive horseracing scenes for which Munnings is most well-known, the displays chart the artist’s life and six-decade career.

Suitablity for the Disabled: Partial. WCs Suitability for Dogs: Limited access to grounds, on leads.
