A Royal Rescue: Dumfries House Saved and Revealed. Matthew Williams Monday 17 June 2019

Matthew Williams is a Curator of Cardiff Castle and a Published Author in Art and Architectural Journals.


Never before opened to the public, Dumfries House is a forgotten Georgian gem, designed by Adam and furnished by Chippendale and others. Once a home of the Marquesses of Bute, Matthew Williams has known and admired Dumfries House for twenty years. The story of its controversial rescue is both fascinating and entertaining.
