Upton House is a spectacular country house of grand proprtions whic contains a fine dollection of art. There are works by Breughel, El Greco, and Holbein to be seen.
The house itself was built in 1695, from the local mellow stone, and is much in appearance today, as when it was conceived.
Lord Bearsted, chairman of Shell, bought and extensively renovated the house inside in an art deco style. The house also contains an extensive display of material about the Shell company, including many of its radical posters for its oil and petrol.
