The working London home to the Duke of Northumberland, Syon House is set within a 200-acre park and located on the site of a medieval abbey dissolved by Henry VIII. Designed in the neoclassical style by Robert Adam, the interior of the present building is said to represent the quintessence of Adam's style and, in particular, his revolutionary use of colour. Royal visitors to the property include Charles I, Henry VIII (whose body was stored in Syon en route to Windsor for his burial, only to burst, providing an impromptu meal for a pack of courtyard dogs), Princess (later Queen) Victoria and members of the current royal family; public visitors can access the private apartments and bedroom used by Queen Victoria when she was a princess. Dating back to the 16th century, Syon Park Gardens were later landscaped by 'Capability' Brown. Today, they feature a Great Conservatory, Flora's Lawn, an 18-century ice house and over 200 species of rare trees.
