Kimbolton Castle

Huntingdon PE28 0EA


Kimbolton Castle, Katherine of Aragon's last residence, was largely rebuilt as the 18th century country house of the Earls and Dukes of Manchester, owners for nearly 350 years. Although the castle is now the home of Kimbolton School, there are outstanding Pellegrini murals and a fine collection of portraits. Architectural features include state rooms and exterior refacing by Vanbrugh and Hawksmoor, an inner courtyard probably by Henry Bell, and an Adam gatehouse.
