RABY CASTLE PUBLIC ROOMS

Raby is the second largest castle in England after Windsor Castle. Built in the 14th century by the powerful Neville family and the birthplace of Cecily Neville, mother of 2 kings, Edward IV and Richard III. Raby had gone through various architectural changes, principally in the 18th and 19th centuries. Susan was asked by the current owners when they inherited it to improve the public rooms, pending a much more significant refurbishment some years hence. Susan rationalised and reorganised a lot of the furniture and added and removed lots of items to make the rooms more attractive and personal.
