Strongly recommend a visit. The Portland Collection is a free museum collection. Tours of Welbeck Abbey are also available in August, but book early in the year to ensure a place.

Popped in on my way to Worksop and wished I had longer to spend there. Amazing exhibition which changes regularly. The Farm Shop should be included in the visit and take a cold bag to buy the beef and other goodies.

As people have already said, the car parking is extremely convenient; only a moment's walk from the Harley Gallery. There are lots of spaces too.
